Online textbooks are provided electronically and free for most GCOOL courses, but three use print texts that are not included in the tuition fees. Specifically, GCOOL 103 Food and Beverage Controls, and the two-part course GCOOL 111 and 112 Accounting for Club Operations which utilize the same text. To obtain these textbooks contact the Selkirk College Bookstore to arrange for payment and delivery.
Selkirk College carries copies in inventory, so obtaining them from the institution is often easy and fast.
