Coronavirus Update:
Summer 2020 Textbooks for APS Dual Credit Students:

Due to the current Coronavirus global health situation, the APS Dual Credit Bookroom will be operating on a limited basis for the summer 2020 CNM term. Most APS employees are working remotely until further notice, but essential school operations are continuing.  Currently there are no book room hours or anyone to answer telephone calls.

For returning textbooks, hold on to them until the book room re-opens, there are no fees. Check back in mid-May for updates to book room hours.

Read here for the summer 2020 textbook guidelines.

Students should register for “includED” classes, which are listed below. CNM offers over 50 of these classes.  includED is a program that electronically delivers the required book automatically to the student on the first day of class through CNM Learn. Information should also be included on your course syllabus provided on the first day of class. At the end of the summer term, if a student has remained in the class until the last drop day at CNM, APS will cover the ‘bookstore fee’ for the includED digital materials.

 The complete list of includED classes can be found on the CNM dual credit website:

Intersession textbooks:

Currently we are only handling requests for INTERSESSION required materials. As the situation develops, we may have more information regarding CNM summer term dual credit textbooks. Please check back here for updated information.


1) Check your CNM class schedule to see if your intersession class uses the all-digital required materials called "includED". Go to this CNM page to check if your class uses includED digital materials. Those are available to access on the first day of your class through your CNM account (see your class syllabus/instructor for access instructions). APS handles the payment for these digital materials, also called the 'bookstore fee.’ You may see this charge on your CNM account. APS Dual Credit students should not pay this fee. 

2) If you determine that your INTERSESSION class does not use includED digital materials, fill out the "Where's My Textbook" online form to request the required materials for that class.

3) You should receive an email reply in a few days with more information.

General Information:

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. 

We do not provide textbooks to charter schools, private, home school or out of district students. If you attend an APS charter high school or another type of school outside of the regular APS district, see the dual credit contact person at your school for textbooks.

If you are an APS high school student, our book room is the only location that distributes and collects textbooks for dual credit. Do not go to the CNM or UNM bookstores for dual credit textbooks.
