Students have several different textbook purchase options: new, used, rental, e-Books and Market Place (not all options may be available for all textbooks). Ordering through the NPC Online Bookstore allows students the convenience of selling their books back at the end of the fall and spring semesters (not available at all campus locations).
Be sure to order at least 3-4 weeks BEFORE classes start to ensure you get your books in time!
