    includED logoSelect CCC course sections are participating in the Follett includED program which means your textbook costs will be included as part of your course tuition and fees.  The textbook will be a digital e-text that is available when you start the course. CCC has negotiated to get you the best price available for the includED e-text. Students will be automatically charged on their account for the includED e-text. The e-text is covered by financial aid. The charge will appear as a fee along with your tuition on your bill.

    Students enrolled in Information Technology course sections participating in the Follett includED e-text program will use a system called SIMnet from McGraw-Hill for the textbook. Students are sent an email from our bookstore with the full SIMnet access code and will be charged the cost of the access code on their student account at CCC.  This code can then be used in SIMnet to gain access to their course materials. Students can use a 14-day trial code to get started in the course right away as they wait for the email from the bookstore.
