How Do I Get My Books? Through BibliU
BibliU is a platform that will:
  • Provide access to textbooks and many course resources through a mobile-friendly app and directly through Moodle.
  • Allows you to search across all of your books and resources.
  • Allows you to annotate your books and resources as you read them.
  • Provides feedback to instructors designed to help them support your learning.
  • Provides a flat, predictable, low cost per course for all materials—fees will be added to your bills, and you may use financial aid.
What does this mean for you?
  • There is no need to go to the bookstore or order books online. Your resources will appear in your courses on the first day of your classes and are available via the BibliU tile (found embedded into the SPCC Navigate App).
You will see a $50 fee for “digital course materials” added to each course to cover costs. Financial aid will cover this fee, so be sure to complete your financial aid applications
Changes to 2022-2023 Federal Verification Processing
The Department of Education (ED) today announced that it would be making changes to the 2022-2023 academic year verification process as a means of providing relief to students and reducing existing barriers to enrollment for millions of low-income students who need access to financial aid.
South Piedmont will verify Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose when the student is selected for federal verification under Verification Tracking Flag “V4” and “V5” unless a student is excluded from verification as provided under 34 CFR 668.54(b).

Please note the Verification Tracking group V5 includes a combination of the verification of income/tax information (which is waived under this notice) as well as Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose (which must still be verified in 2022-2023).

The Office of Financial Aid and Veterans Services may need to collect documentation, as needed to resolve conflicting information needed to help determine a student’s eligibility for federal student aid.

In addition, SPCC maintains the discretion to select students for verification according to consistently applied institutional policies.
