Your Community College Solution


Barton Community College offers three types of courses: eCourse, Hybrid and eCompanion.


There are different bookstores for each of these course types to ensure students order and receive the correct textbooks/materials. Be sure to identify your course type prior to purchasing textbooks/materials as the required items are not always identical or interchangeable between course types.  Students are responsible for obtaining the correct textbooks for enrolled classes.


For information on paying for textbooks/materials please visit the Paying for College Textbooks page.
