MGCCC students enrolling in online courses provided by other colleges should go to the eLearning home page, click on the Check Student Profile and check their student profile for textbook information. Students may also contact the course instructor for book purchase information. Textbooks for courses offered by other colleges are going to be purchase items.

Where can I purchase my textbook?

Textbooks or other items not available in the MGCCC bookstore can be purchased online.   The best place to look is the publisher’s website.  However, you are encouraged to comparison shop to find the best prices for your materials.

Types of websites to look for books:

  • Companies That Provide Cost Comparisons
  • Companies That Rent/Sell New & Used Textbooks and Buy Back Textbooks
  • Companies That Rent/Sell New & Used Textbooks
  • Companies That List Bookstore Sites

IMPORTANT: Textbooks vary between the various sections for online courses. When you change between section numbers, the textbook will probably be different. For example, the four sections of art appreciation offered by MGCCC use the same textbook; however, if you are enrolled in the section of art appreciation taught by Hinds Community College, the textbook is not the same as used by MGCCC. Also note that the MGCCC art appreciation book is on book service and available through the MGCCC bookstores. The art appreciation book for the Hinds online course is a purchase item not available in the MGCCC bookstores. Online book companies are probably going to require a credit card or check. Remember that you can also use a money order. Money orders are sold by many organizations including the U.S. Postal Service.
