Digital Materials Fees

Over the last number of years, there have been substantial increases in the availability of digital materials related to academic subjects.

Digital materials are electronic learning resources such as textbooks, presentations, simulations and general course content. Some of these materials can be obtained without cost, but many others must be purchased, or licensed, from a third party. The quality of the digital materials makes them a valuable and appropriate addition to courses that enhances student learning and improves the overall student experience – particularly for courses with an online learning component.

When we place licensed digital materials in a course, we charge students a digital materials fee simply to cover the cost of the materials. This is very similar to the way in which required physical materials, such as textbooks, must be purchased for traditional courses through a digital materials fee that is paid to the bookstore providing students with an access code. The access code is entered when students first enter the online course environment to permit full access to all course materials.

Please note that digital materials fees are not refundable.
