These costs depend entirely upon the specific courses a student takes. Book/material costs vary widely from course to course; some are relatively inexpensive and some are not. Nursing students, for example, will pay higher prices for their highly technical books and related supplies (such as clinical uniforms) than a student taking mostly academic transfer courses such as English and history. Books and supplies will probably cost a MINIMUM of $35.00 per semester hour. Remember, however, that these costs may run considerably higher for certain specialized courses of study. Students needing a more accurate estimate of book costs, based on the specific courses they will take, should contact the campus bookstore.
