Discounted Tuition

Additional discounts and institutional scholarships cannot be combined with discounted tuition offerings.

Resource Fee

The resource fee covers technology resources, textbooks, and course materials for students in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS). All students must pay the technology portion of the fee except for Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard service members and dependents enrolled in undergraduate programs. Most required textbooks and course materials will be automatically delivered in digital format to CAGS students through CCU's Slingshot program. If a digital textbook is not available for the course, the student will receive a printed rental version at no additional cost. Students who prefer physical textbooks may upgrade to receive printed rental textbooks for an additional cost. Students who register for a class less than 10 days before the class start date will incur an additional expedited shipping fee for physical books. All textbooks provided through Slingshot must be returned at the end of the class.

The resource fee is non-refundable for students who administratively drop or withdraw from a class after the drop deadline. For students who are registered for courses with no required textbooks, or if there is no use of the Slingshot program for whatever reason, the textbook and course materials portion of the resource fee will not be charged. Students may opt out of the textbook portion of the resource fee if they prefer to purchase their textbooks from another source. For additional information, read our Slingshot program FAQs.
