How much do textbooks cost?
They vary in cost. While new books can cost over $100, you can buy used textbooks or rent them for much cheaper than that—as low as $10! Furthermore, if you complete the FAFSA there may be financial aid available to help pay for textbooks. Textbooks can be purchased new, used, or rented from the Moorpark College Bookstore. Just type in your course and section number (see schedule links above) and the website will tell you which books are required for the course. If cheap options are not available at the bookstore, we encourage you to explore the library or popular retailers like Amazon.com or Chegg.com that provide cheap textbook rentals.

Do PACE students have access to student services?
Yes! PACE students ARE Moorpark College students, and have access to all the same services and facilities including the library, tutoring, career advising, and more. For a list of all student services we offer, click here.

And if you’re feeling the need to see some cute animals, we’ve even got a zoo open on weekends.


Do I need a parking permit?
No. PACE courses only meet on Saturdays so parking is free! (unless you’re also on campus Monday - Friday then an electronic parking pass is needed).  You can apply for the pass in your VCCCD student portal.
