Spring Semester Textbook Purchasing

Students who have anticipated aid in excess of paying their tuition and fees have three ways to purchase their books and supplies up to $650, for the upcoming spring semester:

Option 1:  Beginning, December 19, 2013 through January 30, 2014, you may order your books and supplies online through the Thomas Nelson Bookstore.  Go to www.efollett.com, pick Virginia then Thomas Nelson Community College, then choose the campus that the class is being held.

  • The Hampton campus Bookstore carries textbooks for all campuses and distance learning classes.
  • The Historic Triangle campus Bookstore only stocks textbooks for the Historic Triangle campus.
  • You will need your Student ID number to place the order.

When ordering online you have the option to have your order shipped to your home or for pick-up at the Bookstore.  A shipping charge up to $19.99 will be deducted from your financial aid.  Allow three business days for processing online orders.  You will receive an e-mail when your order is ready.  Please print your confirmation page when picking up orders.  You will receive an email from the bookstore when your order is ready for pick-up.  The pick-up option will remain open until the first day of class or until storage space is no longer available.

Option 2:  The ability to rent your textbooks is available online and in the store.  You may save up to 50% by renting selected textbooks.  You will need to have a valid credit card to insure the textbook is returned in good condition.  The credit card will only be charged if the book(s) is not returned or is damaged.  Please register at www.efollett.com.

Option 3:  If you prefer to do your shopping in person, you can still go to the Bookstore to purchase your books and supplies.  The dates for this option are:

Nursing and Dental Hygiene
January 6

Open to All
January 7 – 30

Note:  All bookstore charges for 16W, 8W1, 8W2, and Dynamic sessions must occur during the charge dates listed above.  These dates are the only times that students may charge books with financial aid, regardless of when their classes begin.

The bookstore is authorized to charge the following to student financial aid accounts: textbooks, school supplies, backpacks (under $90), reference materials, calculators and flash drives. Software purchases must be verified with a copy of the course syllabus that indicates that the software is required.  Any unapproved items (TNCC gifts) will be automatically cancelled off of your order.

If you are on Financial Aid Probation or Academic Plan, your ability to order online may be delayed until grades are reviewed and posted from the fall 2013 semester.
