Your Community College Solution

Purchasing Textbooks

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.


Please visit the bookstore page for details on viewing and purchasing the required textbooks/materials.



Financial Assistance & Payment Plan

Bookstore Voucher Information

Students that have available traditional Federal Financial Aid (Federal Pell or Federal Student Loans), or a NelNet (NBS) payment plan and have signed up for a BARTonline eCourse, will have a voucher created automatically for them.  Students will then receive an email from the BARTonline Bookstore which will include instructions on how to order their textbooks/materials and how to use the online bookstore voucher.  Any amount that the student charges using a voucher will be added to the student account.  If the student is on the payment plan, the amount charged will be added to the student's monthly payments. If the voucher is due to available financial aid, the amount charged will be applied to the student's financial aid.


Students will need to use their email address to use their vouchers and to purchase books with a voucher.


Students with nontraditional Financial Aid (Veterans Assistance, third party payment), will need to submit a voucher request. If you are using any of the nontraditional financial assistance methods please submit a Voucher Request form by clicking on the link below.


Click here for the Voucher Request Form


A submitted voucher request will be processed manually and will take additional time.  For the manual requests, once the request has been processed, the student will receive an email from the BARTonline Bookstore informing the student that the voucher is available.


Vouchers can only be used up until 5 days past the start of the course.


If you have any questions regarding the voucher process please contact the Barton Community College Bookstore at or 800-748-7594 ext. 229.
