Get your Boomer Bundle of Books before classes start!
JCC and Barnes & Noble are helping reduce the cost of textbooks by nearly 50%!
Students attending Jefferson Community College will be able to pick up all the textbooks and supporting materials they need in one convenient package, at a reduced price. If you’re eligible for financial aid, you can use it towards the purchase of the textbooks or you can apply for a scholarship to help cover the costs.
