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. 

To determine whether your program requires any textbooks, please refer to the program information for your career major. The textbook lists with ISBNs and retail prices will be in the Student Resources section. The Cosmetology, Esthetician, and Nail Technician programs require students to purchase their books from the Francis Tuttle campus bookstore. For all other programs, students may purchase their books from the Francis Tuttle bookstore at the appropriate campus, but they are permitted to purchase the books elsewhere.  We encourage students to look at various outlets for the best price. Textbooks prices are subject to change. Please confirm any textbook requirements with the instructor prior to beginning class.

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.
