    HELPING STUDENTS REDUCE THE HIGH COST OF TEXTBOOKS

    The Ventura College Foundation expanded support to students of Ventura College to include textbooks in 2005.  On average, the cost of textbooks and supplies costs $1,420, often the largest educational expense encountered by a Ventura College student.  This can be difficult for anyone beginning to pursue a post-secondary education and their educational goals- particularly low-income students.

    The following VC Foundation resources allow students to successfully complete their courses without the financial burden of buying textbooks.

    RESERVE COLLECTION

    The David P. Bianco Reserve Collection allows students to check out their books for a two-hour period while at the Library.  The collection has a copy of almost every textbook in use each semester. 

    TEXTBOOK LENDING LIBRARY

    The Lending Library allows students to check out up to three textbooks for an entire semester at no cost.
