Digital Course Materials (DCM)

  • Save lots of cash. Students save $88.00 per book (on average)*
  • No waiting in line. Students have Day One access to their books through NSOnline.
  • Less hassle. Charges for books are automatically applied to student accounts.**
  • Applies to some courses, but not all. Check list: Summer 2020 DCM Courses (PDF)

Nashville State offers a convenient and affordable program that delivers the required materials for your course in digital format on the first day of class via NS Online. To ensure the lowest cost for students, the courses participating include a course materials fee automatically applied to your student account. This comes at a significantly reduced cost compared to traditional physical textbooks and course materials.

* Overall, $815,000.00 was saved in the Summer 2020 semester with the DCM program.

** If you decide you do not want to purchase the course materials provided to you as part of the program, you can use the Nashville State Community College Customer Portal to opt out of the program. If you opt out, you will be responsible for obtaining the required course materials on your own. You will have the opportunity to opt out or back in to the program for Summer 2020 until 06/08/2020. (Opting Out is not an automatic reversal of the charge on your student account. These charges will be removed on or before 06/08/2020.)
