Computers and software


The PCC Bookstore partners with the following companies to provide computer hardware and software discounts to students, faculty, and staff. Since these are not PCC Bookstore websites, bookstore prices and availability may vary from those listed online.

Students must provide proof of current-term enrollment to make purchases using these discounts. Bring your student ID with the current term sticker and a photo ID.
