Military & Veteran Students

COVID-19: Important Updates Regarding Your Military and VA Education Benefits

Financial Disclaimer

During the 2021-22 academic year, some or all of the instructional formats may change due to an emergency situation affecting college operations, public safety, or public health, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuition and fees are charged at the beginning of the semester and will remain in place regardless of any changes in instructional format. Tuition and fees will not be refunded in the event the curriculum delivery format changes for any part of the 2021-22 academic year.

MVP'S Lending Library

We will take your used books and lend them to other military-connected students in need. Textbooks are free to check out every semester and must be returned the week after finals.

Our library has been stocked by donations from the PPCC campus community. You can help us develop our library by donating your old textbooks. The larger the collection, the more military affiliated students we can help. If you would like to donate, bring your old textbooks to MVP (C222) anytime during business hours.

If you are in need of a book, please follow the steps below:

  • Request access
  • Once we receive your request, we will send you a link to sign up for our online library powered by Librarika where you can view all the available books and place a reservation request. Placing a reservation request does not confirm availability.
  • Once you request the book, we will email you whether your book(s) are or are not available to be picked up within 2 business days.

If you have used the Lending Library before and already have an account, please skip the "request access" step and log in HERE.

Books are first come, first served. We cannot ship books to students. You must be able to pick them up in person at the Centennial Campus (C222). If you do not pick up your book(s) within 2 business days of notification, we will issue them to the next student in the queue.

If you have any questions, please email svo@ppcc.edu
