Textbooks

Most Acacia courses require no textbook. For those courses that do require a textbook, it is the responsibility of the student to purchase or rent the textbook prior to the start of the course (E-textbooks may have limited time access. Be sure to check the listing before you complete your transaction). Acacia does not sell or lease textbooks. Students may purchase or rent in any format (hardback, e-textbook, new, used, etc.) but must use the assigned edition. Prices at the time of the current student handbook publication are listed below but are subject to change. Prices listed are from the publisher, however, students may purchase from any source.

Since courses are updated to meet changing standards, legislation, state requirements, etc., textbooks may change during the course of the program.
