Textbook Access Program (TAP)

*The TAP Application for 2023-2024 is now closed*  


The Textbook Access Program (TAP) program is designed to assist students in obtaining required class materials and textbooks required for their academic success that they would not be able to purchase on their own. 

Students who have been approved and granted TAP Services have the flexibility to use their voucher for various items, including textbooks, iClickers, notebooks, school supplies, and more. However, it's important to note that the items must be available on the Baytree Bookstore's website in order to utilize the voucher successfully.

We aim to assist students in severe financial hardship to access class materials. You DO NOT need to have exhausted both subsidized and unsubsidized loans to receive financial assistance from the Textbook Access Program. However, we do prioritize students who have exhausted all forms of financial aid given to them.
