Although Accel funding includes a book allowance, you will have to pay for your books in advance.
The book funds less any fees owed to GPC will not be available until several months into the semester.
You have a choice regarding when you buy your text books: you can get them before classes begin or
you can wait until the first day you go to class. If you want to buy the books before class begins, you can
email your instructor for a list of the required ISBN numbers. If you wait until the first day of class,
the required books will be listed on the syllabus for each class.
Books can be purchased in a
GPC bookstore or anywhere you can find the correct volume including online sources.
However, allow enough time to get your books in time for classes if you are going to buy them from a source other than a GPC bookstore.
