Undergraduate Book Grant

All degree-seeking undergraduate students are eligible for the undergraduate book grant which covers nearly all of the required text and reading materials regardless of the degree being pursued. That's an average of $1,000 savings per year.* Just register for courses, submit payment for tuition, and your books will be provided.

Graduate students are required to buy their own course materials; however we strives to minimize such costs.
