Textbook Access Program (TAP)

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 are approved and granted TAP Services can use their voucher to purchase anything from textbooks, iClickers, molecular model kits, class readers, online homework access codes, and much more!


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.
