No Text Required Materials
What does No Text Required mean?
- It means that no items need to be purchased or acquired by the student for the course
- Examples of Adoptions: Inclusive Access, Lab or Lecture Packets, Supply Kits, Physical books, eBooks/Access Codes, Required Supplies (calculator, goggles, lab coats, culinary hats & aprons)
Cengage Unlimited Inclusive Access Program
The Cengage Unlimited Inclusive Access (IA) program is a course material model in collaboration with top publishers that converts books into digital content and is provided through D2L instantly for students on the first day of class. Inclusive Access is NOT a physical access code sold through the SCC Bookstore. There will be no product in the bookstore for purchase.
Inclusive Access Fees
The Inclusive Access fee will be added to each student's account during the second week of the semester, after the drop/add period has ended. The registration page displays the amount that will be charged for Cengage Unlimited Inclusive Access under the textbook information. After the Add/Drop date, all enrolled students, who have not chosen to opt-out of the Inclusive Access materials or dropped the course, will be charged the Inclusive Access fee. This will show as a New Textbook Charge on student accounts. The exact amount charged can be found under each course on this site.
Out of Print Titles
Out of Print Titles are materials that can no longer be printed by a publisher/distributor, or titles that have not gone to a new edition. Bookstore staff may have difficulty acquiring enough copies of out of print titles to supply them for a course. If a title has gone out of print, a bookstore staff member will reach out to request an alternative textbook or edition change.
Faculty members can request a copy of the textbook (desk copy) for their own use free of charge from most publishers. These items need to be requested by faculty members through the publisher or publisher representative. The bookstore is unable to order desk copies for faculty. Limited student copies may be available for faculty purchase through the SCC bookstore based on current inventory and store needs.
The South Central College bookstore is unable to ship to PO Boxes. Please use a physical street address for your order, or select an on-campus locker pickup at checkout.
