The Learning Materials Program: A Convenient and Affordable Solution to Textbooks

CMC offers students an innovative solution to the challenge most college students encounter, obtaining the correct textbooks, we call it the Learning Materials Program or the LMP. The Learning Materials Program combines the conveniences of a subscription-like service with the vast inventory of a library to our students, delivering all required textbooks direct to students before the first day of class at a very affordable rental rate per credit hour. 

Beginning Fall 2021, the LMP rate will be reduced by $4/Credit Hour to just $25!

How Much Does The LMP Cost?

Once a student registers for a course with a required textbook, the rate (per credit hour) of the LMP will be automatically applied to the student's financial account.

With this low-cost, per credit fee, students receive all required textbooks and digital access codes automatically provided to them in a personalized hassle-free order.

The LMP is considered part of student tuition and is, therefore, an eligible Financial Aid expense.


Current LMP Rates:

Fall 2020 - $29/Credit Hour

Spring 2021 - $29/Credit Hour

Summer 2021 - $29/Credit Hour

Fall 2021 - $25/Credit Hour

How does the LMP work?

Skip the hassle of tracking down the correct edition or buying and selling your textbooks every semester!

The Colorado Mountain College Learning Materials Program is an integrated program designed to deliver student textbooks directly to their residence at the beginning of the semester.

Once students register for their courses an order will populate to send all the required materials to the student. But before that can happen, students will need to verify their physical mailing address.

Once this has been completed, all required textbooks will conveniently ship directly to the student or the campus location where the student resides prior to course start.

To see your textbook order and information please go to Basecamp (login required), then access Learning Materials Program under Student Resources.

How do I verify my address?

Verifying your address is a quick process!

Students move around a lot and for that reason, we require students to verify their address prior to the start of every semester to ensure that we ship their textbooks to the correct address before classes start.

Textbooks are shipped to physical addresses only, no PO Boxes. Textbook packages are shipped via UPS and therefore will need to be shipped to a physical address.

First, you’ll need to login to Basecamp and select the Learning Material Program link. Once you have opened your account you’ll see your personalized dashboard, select “Verify Address”. If you are studying OFF-CAMPUS, enter your home physical address and phone number. If you are studying ON A RESIDENTIAL CAMPUS, select ship to campus and verify the correct campus location.

You’ll need to follow these same steps even if you are taking online courses.

Last, make sure to save by selecting Verify Address at the bottom of the screen.
