ACCESS aims to lower costs, increase student success

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

To better support students in the classroom and provide more predictability over the costs of books, RCBC students pay a flat rate ($21 per credit) for all 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 include:

  • Student ID number
  • The semester for which you wish to opt-out
  • The courses for which you have registered

You will be notified when your materials are ready for pick up from the bookstore. 

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

Please note: in most cases, the opt-out will apply to all courses you are taking in a specific term and cannot be applied on a course-by-course basis, except for Health Sciences.

Students who want their ACCESS material shipped to their preferred address can opt-in by adding the ACCESS shipping fee ONLY to their cart for a $5.33 charge. To have your items shipped to your preferred address, click here.
