Spring Book Voucher Instructions

EOPS Book Vouchers Expire on Thursday, April 8, 2021

EOPS is working with the DVC bookstore and DVC library to maximize the EOPS book voucher for Spring 2021. New for this semester, the library has a small inventory of textbooks in specific classes to loan to students for the entire semester. The bookstore will package your required textbooks in one convenient bundle for shipping or pick-up. When possible, this bundle may include a textbook from the library loan program to make the best use of your book voucher. Our collective goal is to reduce your out-of-pocket expense as much as possible. However, we cannot guarantee covering the entire cost of your textbooks.

Textbook Purchase Instructions:  
  1. Within 3-5 business days of receiving our request for your book voucher, the bookstore will contact you letting you know your textbooks are ready.

  2. When the bookstore contacts you, they will confirm the books you want and your preferred method of delivery (bookstore pick-up or shipping). If a book is on order, the bookstore will let you know about any delays. If you are currently enrolled in a class at Los Medanos College or Contra Costa College and would like to use your book voucher to purchase the textbook, please email the bookstore (dvcbookcenter@email.4cd.edu) as soon as possible with your request.

  3. INFO ABOUT ACCESS CODES: The bookstore does carry some online access codes. To find out if the bookstore has the specific access code required for your class, please email the access code name, class title, and section number. You can also email the bookstore to inquire about the availability of other non-textbook required course materials.

     ** If total cost of your books exceeds the amount of your book voucher, the bookstore will work with you to determine how to best maximize your book voucher amount. **

Reimbursement Instructions: In-Person or Phone

The DVC bookstore can process reimbursements for textbook purchases made at the DVC bookstore either in person or over the phone.

In-Person Book Voucher Reimbursement Instructions

  1. Go to the Pleasant Hill Campus bookstore** (outside window closest to the Math building). Refer to the bookstore website for store hours.
