Changes to Textbook Policy
  • Beginning Fall 2022: Due to recent changes in the textbook policy, we will no longer authorize scholarship students to charge their textbooks to their student account at:  Clovis Community College, Doña Ana Community College; and Western New Mexico University.  Additionally, the ECECD Scholarship will no longer reimburse students directly for textbooks or e-books purchased online or at the campus bookstore for courses at these schools that have a per credit hour fee.
      • These institutions now automatically charge a per credit hour textbook fee for all course-required textbooks. This fee is included on your tuition invoice and we will pay this fee when your school bills us.
      • Please review your school’s textbook policy for instructions on how to access your textbooks.
Textbook Reimbursement Process:
  • The ECECD Scholarship Program provides textbook assistance to students who are pursuing a Certificate, Associates, or Bachelor’s degree.
      • 100% assistance for students pursuing a Certificate or Associates Degree.
      • 100% (beginning FALL 2022) assistance for students pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree.
  • Only purchases of textbooks for approved courses are authorized; scholar assumes responsibility for unauthorized purchases.
  • Once approved by the Scholarship Coach, students are able to charge their textbooks at their school’s bookstore.  The bill for the books will be sent directly to the ECECD Scholarship Program.
  • Students who purchase their books out-of pocket will need to:
    1. Upload an itemized receipt showing book title, cost, student name, and student ID number. Receipts should be uploaded to your unique upload account.
    2. Complete a CNM W9 form and email it directly to [email protected].
      • Please click here to download a W9 form.
      • If you have previously submitted a W9 form to CNM, you DO NOT need to submit a new one.  You only need to send in a new W9 if your address, banking, or other information has changed.
      • NOTE:   If you wish to receive your reimbursement through direct deposit, you will be contacted to verify your bank information.
