 COVID UPDATE FOR SPRING 2021 SEMESTER:

Due to the current Coronavirus global health situation, the APS Dual Credit Bookroom has outlined key dates and guidelines that will assist APS dual credit students with receiving their intersession and spring semester college textbooks during the pandemic.

Normal bookroom hours and front desk telephone call backs are suspended for the spring semester to keep students and staff safe during the pandemic. Please do not leave voicemails on our main line, there is nobody available to return phone calls. Instead,  fill out the online form  WHERE IS MY TEXTBOOK? to communicate with us or place an order for your textbooks.

If you have textbooks from previous semesters, hold on to them until the book room re-opens, there are no fees. 

To find out how to obtain your CNM or UNM spring semester textbooks, click the link to read the SPRING 2021 TEXTBOOK PROCEDURES

Students are strongly encouraged to register for CNM classes that use the all-digital textbook delivery called "includED". It is a program that electronically delivers the required book automatically to the student on the first day of class through Brightspace. Information should also be included on your course syllabus provided on the first day of class. CLICK HERE to view the list of includED course offerings.

Overview:

The Dual Credit textbook Center handles the distribution and collection of all dual credit textbooks for high school students that attend a regular APS high school or high school of choice. 

This website is designed to show how easy it is to obtain the required textbooks for dual credit classes and also answers common questions about the dual credit textbook procedures.
