Textbook Information

Some Francis Tuttle programs require students to purchase textbooks for classroom instruction, while others provide these resources in the classroom at no cost to the student. 

Francis Tuttle is proud to provide textbooks to students in the classroom at no cost to the student for all programs except Practical Nursing. These textbooks are considered a loan, but if a student chooses to purchase a textbook for personal use, they may purchase these from any retailer who offers the book. We encourage students to look at various outlets for the best price. Textbooks prices are subject to change.

Practical Nursing students may purchase their books from the Francis Tuttle campus bookstore or from any retailer who sells the books. The textbook list with ISBNs and retail prices is available in the Practical Nursing Student Handbook or on the Practical Nursing program information webpage.

Students receiving Federal Student Aid funds (i.e., Federal Pell Grants) may use these funds to purchase books and supplies from the Francis Tuttle Bookstore if they are receiving enough funds to cover the amounts of the books and supplies in addition to their tuition for the payment period. Students should inform the bookstore of their wish to use Federal Student Aid to cover these costs, and the bookstore will apply the Title IV disbursement toward the charges.
