Distinctions & Opportunities
E-Text InitiativeA number of classes in the College of Arts and Sciences are included in the E-Text Initiative, an initiative designed to help lower the costs of textbooks in some courses. Students who enroll in these classes will automatically be billed the cost of purchasing electronic versions of one or more of the assigned text books, which they can access through the Oncourse site for the class and which will cost substantially less than a printed text. Students who do not want to pay this fee should not enroll in these classes, which carry a special designation in the Schedule of Classes published by the Office of the Registrar.
Students will continue to have access to their E-Texts throughout the rest of their time in the College. However, students in these sections who choose to do so can purchase a printed and bound version for a nominal additional fee.
