Cougar Store

At Northeast Iowa Community College, selecting and ordering textbooks is done entirely online at the NICC Online Bookstore. Created in partnership with Akademos, Inc. and powered by TextbookX, the Online Bookstore simplifies the textbook ordering process for students and professors while providing them with a variety of physical and digital textbook formats.

NEW! Shop apparel, course supplies and additional items via the new Cougar Store online.

Textbooks are not available at Cougar Store campus locations, but campus stores are still open with a variety of course supplies, clothing and additional products.

The Online Bookstore offers:

  • Quick ordering process - complete your entire order in 5 minutes
  • New, used, eBook, and rental textbook formats
  • An average savings of 60% off list price on Marketplace items
  • Price match guarantee on new books
  • Free shipping on retail orders over $49 (not including Marketplace)
  • Year-round access to post and sell any textbook on the website's Marketplace - you name the price

Due to nationwide supply chain issues, ordering your class materials early is the best way to avoid shipping or inventory delays.

All courses, required materials, and pricing options are displayed in a personalized, easy-to-use page when you log in with your student account. Order early to take advantage of the great savings opportunities and free delivery options. Dell laptops are also available for purchase via the Online Bookstore.
