Every semester the Orange Coast College Foundation allocates money to assist students with acquiring textbooks for the courses in the event students cannot afford them or access them from the OCC Library. Funding is limited so please apply as soon as possible. It may take up to 3 weeks for approval and setting up of the Bookstore Account.
