Bookstore Announcements 12-18-19

TCAT Dickson is excited to announce a new partnership with Follett Bookstore for the sale of textbooks. Students will now order their textbooks online and they will be shipped directly to their home while non-textbook items will be for sale in the campus bookstore. Additional items may be necessary for the program that are not available in the bookstore; check the instructor required items list on the program’s web page for details.

1. Follett Bookstore: Beginning December 17, 2019, students may view the Follett Bookstore textbooks online at https://www.bkstr.com/tcatdicksonstore; however, purchasing will not officially open until December 23, 2019. Books will be delivered in 24-48 hours. Students will be able to charge Follett Bookstore textbooks to their financial aid, if aid is available. Students without financial aid, or balances beyond financial aid, will need to pay the balance via the Follett web site.

2. TCAT Dickson Bookstore: TCAT Dickson will continue to sell non-textbook items in its institutional bookstore on the Dickson and Clarksville Campuses. These items include testing, select tools, and uniforms for select programs. Purchasing of bookstore items will begin in the first week of the spring term. Students will be able to charge TCAT Dickson Bookstore items to their financial aid, if aid is available. Students without financial aid, or balances beyond financial aid, will need to pay the balance at the Bookstore.

3. Instructor Required Items: Some TCAT Dickson programs have additional items that will be necessary to complete the program but are not available from either bookstore. Students will need to secure these items on their own.

Booklists for Follett and TCAT Dickson bookstores, as well as, the instructor’s required items list, are available on each program’s webpage on the school’s website.
