In addition,

  • There is a required $10 material fee that provides access to digital course materials.* (The digital materials are identical to the printed materials.)
  • You have the option to purchase a printed manual for an additional $30.

*After you register and your class is confirmed, you will receive a confirmation letter outlining how to access digital materials. If you choose digital materials (no printed manual), there may be a small file of pages you will need to print and bring to class. You will also need to access these digital materials during the course, so be prepared to bring your own device (B.Y.O.D.) to each class. If you pre-ordered a printed manual, it will be provided to you on the first day of class.
