Digital Course Materials

Community College of Philadelphia's Bookstores are dedicated to supporting academic programs and student life. While providing excellent customer service, convenient store locations and hours of operation, the College's Bookstores are the main outlet for textbooks and Community College of Philadelphia merchandise. For information regarding the bookstore hours of operation for the Main Campus, Northeast Regional Center and Northwest Regional Centers, please visit the bookstore website.

In an effort to make college as affordable as possible for our students, Community College of Philadelphia and Follett Higher Education Group have partnered to offer what we call Follett Access—offering students less expensive digital materials instead of physical textbooks. Students pay a discounted e-book rate, and the materials are available on the first day of class. This reduces overall costs for students, who receive the lowest price available for the course materials.

Follett Access

What is Access?

The Access program is a Community College of Philadelphia Bookstore initiative, in partnership with College faculty, that delivers all required course materials digitally at the lowest possible price. 

How does it work?

If your course is participating in Access, you are automatically opted in, and you do not have to purchase your course materials for this course at the CCP Bookstore. Course materials are delivered in several different ways. You will find out more information from your professor on the first day of class regarding how to obtain your course materials.

By participating in Access, you will receive a digital copy of your course materials on or before the first day of class at the lowest price available. You are charged through your student account. Course fees can be found on MyCCP at time of registration. For more information on billing, please see our Policy On Inclusion On Digital Course Materials.
