To order your textbooks or find out what books you’ll need for your courses, click on the bookstore link that serves the campus where your course is being taught or your online course is being offered.





You can use your financial aid to purchase textbooks and supplies either online or at the bookstore. SFA purchases can be made approximately 2-3 weeks before the start of the term. Some other restrictions apply. Contact the bookstore for details.


You can order your books online and arrange to pick them up at one of our Distribution Stores at no additional charge. Barnes & Noble at TCC operates Distribution Stores at the Chesapeake Campus and the Portsmouth Campus. Distribution Stores also process textbook refunds, conduct book buybacks at the end of the term, and sell school supplies, TCC clothing, gifts, and reference materials.

Distribution Stores are open Monday-Thursday throughout the year. For hours of operation, visit either the MacArthur Center or the Virginia Beach Bookstore websites (see links above).
