Obtaining textbooks for your classes is an easy process. Here are the quick steps.
1 - Register for class with the help of your advisor.
2 - Identify required textbooks from Book List for the specific academic term. Note the book title, authors, editions, and ISN number. The current textbook list is given below.
3 - Search the internet for the best price. Clearwater Christian College does not endorse any specific vendor.
If you need assistance, consider evaluation sites such as Mashable.
4 - Place your order and have it shipped to your preferred destination. Students often have purchases shipped directly to themselves at the college's address.
Most students and families are well informed with online purchases, return policies, and
challenges with shipping. Don't wait for the last moment to make your purchase. Remember
college students around the nation are doing the same thing so inventories may run low if you
wait too long. When possible, consider purchasing all your textbooks from the same vendor to
save time and minimize potential hassle.

REMEMBER: You are responsible for resolving any problems with vendors. However, you may
contact your instructor or academic advisor by email for advice on specific problems or for help
in resolving course related questions.
Emily, a junior history major, enjoys the heart of CCC. "My favorite part of CCC is the personal relationships that I have been blessed to develop. Here at
