The bookstore is a one-stop-shop operated for the convenience of our students, faculty and staff. In addition to carrying the required and recommended books for all classes, the bookstore provides school supplies, textbooks, course materials, RCBC clothing, RCBC gift items and a variety of snacks.

ACCESS aims to lower costs, increase student success

RCBC students can now ACCESS their books and course materials with less cost and greater convenience.

In an effort to better support students in the classroom, and to provide more predictability over the costs of books, RCBC students pay a flat rate ($21 per credit) for all of their books and course materials. The charge will be included in their bill so students can use their financial aid or payment plans for their books.

Health Sciences courses have unique course materials that require a distinct cost schedule. See below for information about Health Sciences course materials.

Students are automatically enrolled in this program. To opt-out, email

Please note that the last day to opt-out is the last day to drop a course, as listed on the academic calendar.
