Alternative Texbook Programs

In addition to the traditional way of buying a textbook from a store or online, there are two programs that either offer free textbooks, or roll the cost of the the textbook into the tuition and fees when you register.


Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC)

In place of required textbooks, all textbook materials needed for the class will be available online to students free of charge. Students may print copies of the resources but will be responsible for printing costs. Course materials may be Open Educational Resources (OER), see syllabus for specifics.
