How it Works

The Aggie Textbook Access program takes the hassle out of getting your course materials because costs are applied directly to your student account. This allows every enrolled student access to all required materials on or before the first day of class. Once you have selected your courses, your course list will be sent to the N.C. A&T Bookstore. The N.C. A&T Bookstore gets everything ready for you. All you need to do is check your school (@ncat) email for how to access your course materials for the term.    

Your campus is participating in the Aggie Textbook Access program to save students between 20-60% on required course materials! While all students are automatically enrolled, you have the opportunity to opt-out or opt back in during the drop-add period. Students who would like to review the option to opt-out of the program, please review the FAQ titled “Is the program required or can I opt-out of the program”. 

Once you register for your courses, the bookstore will get everything ready for you!
