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.

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.

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.
As a sophomore psychology major, Lydia is learning how to combine Biblical perspectives and clinical psychology. "Throughout high school, I knew that
I wanted to attend a Christian college and study psychology. I wanted an atmosphere that promoted genuine Christian growth in my personal life and I
also wanted to gain a balanced perspective on psychology, one that emphasized biblical counseling as well as clinical psychology, and sought to prove
that true science and the Bible work together. There were several schools that offered these ideals, but I was sold on Clearwater after I visited and
saw how friendly and approachable the professors and students were and learned about the college's focus on personal discipleship. God has definitely
used Clearwater in my life to draw me closer to Him."
