Select CCC course sections are participating in the Follett Access (formerly includED) program which means your textbook costs will be listed as a separate line item on your billing, along with 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 Follett Access e-text. Students will be automatically charged on their account for the Follett Access e-text. The e-text is covered by financial aid. The charge will appear as a fee along with your tuition on your bill.
How do I know if a course section is using a Follett Access e-text?
- Search for classes.
- Click the bookstore Information link at the bottom of the Section Details screen when viewing information for the section.
- The textbook information will display “Follett Access” if the section is using a Follett Access e-text.
Follett Access for Academic Ed Classes
The type of e-text students will use depends upon the type of course they are taking. Academic education courses using Follett Access will access the Follett Access e-text though a link in their Canvas course. The e-text will open in Follett BryteWave Reader.

Follett Access for Information Technology Classes
Students enrolled in information technology course sections participating in the Follett Access 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.
Follett Access for Other Programs
Students enrolled in BSAD, ACCT, and NUTR sections using the Follett Access program will use McGraw-Hill the Connect system for the e-text and courseware.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can opt out of the Follett Access program and not be charged on your student account for the textbook, unless you are taking an INFO program course that uses the McGraw-Hill SIMnet system. There is no other source to purchase the textbook for the INFO courses.
For academic education courses you must opt out before the deadline, the last day for free drop/add for the term at Central Community College. Once you opt out, you will not be able to change your choice and opt back into the program. Please remember that the Follett Access program may also provide access to course materials such as MyMathLab that are required for the course. An access code must be purchased from the bookstore if you do not already have it for MyMathLab.
No, if you opt out of the program, you will lose access to both the Follett Access Brytewave e-text and MyMathLab. You can, however, opt out of the Follett Access program and then purchase an access code from the bookstore for access to MyMathLab.
