Columbia Gorge Community College is proud to announce our partnership with Slingshot, a course materials auto-fulfillment program. 



Slingshot accounts are live! Enrolled students can access their accounts to update preferences, access digital materials, track orders, and more. Required course materials are fulfilled automatically according to account preferences - no additional ordering is necessary. Please contact the store with any questions.

What is Slingshot?

Slingshot is a course materials auto-fulfillment program offered here on the CGCC campus. Think of it as a subscription box for all of your learning materials. Similar to Netflix, Spotify, or Stitch Fix, all your print and digital materials are sent to you directly. Simply enroll in classes as usual, and all of your required course materials will be delivered to you before the first day of class.

What do I need to do?

All  you need to do is enroll in classes as usual. A Slingshot account will be created and materials automatically ordered according to your account preferences.  You will stay opted in (included in the program) for future terms unless you choose to opt out (stop participating). You can adjust your preferences for renting, buying new or used, and physical or digital in your Slingshot account. 

What happens if I opt out?

If you opt out of auto-orders, no materials will be shipped to you and you will need to purchase your materials independently. The CGCC Campus Store will NOT have textbooks in stock. If you do not wish to participate in Slingshot auto-orders, you can opt out in your account settings at any time.

What is the return policy?

Any item provided through Slingshot may be returned during the first week of class for any reason for a full refund, with some additional restrictions for digital materials. Digital items are refundable within 14 days of the first day of access, or thirty (30) days after the purchase is made, whichever occurs first. Additionally, we cannot fulfill refund requests if more than 10% of the product has been viewed and/or if any page(s) of the product has been printed. We recommend contacting Customer Support as soon as possible if you think you will need to return a digital item.

Can I sell my books back?

Yep! You can sell back the books you received via Slingshot here. For more detailed information, please see their Buyback FAQs.
