Book and Course Materials
As a part of the total cost, ABTU will provide all of the books, software, and resources needed to successfully complete a chosen program with ABTU. In an effort to be environmentally friendly, reduce costs, and expose students to, and encourage new technologies, eBooks will be provided for each course rather than a traditional hard book. ABTU will only provide hard books to students if the required textbook is not available in eBook format.

*Other fees include, but are not limited to, shipping, proctoring services, software, webcam, and miscellaneous technology fees. The “other fees” costs are averaged over the duration of your degree program. These charges will occur each term regardless of whether they are applicable for that term or not. Additionally, some software will be academic versions or trials used for the purpose of education and may not be full releases.

Students who withdraw from ABTU courses after the first week of class do not need to return textbooks or materials provided for the class.

Disclosure Statement: eBooks are available to ABTU students through third party publishing companies. eBooks are generally “rented” to students for a period of 180 days, far exceeding the 6 and 12 week duration of ABTU courses.

Last Revised: 5/20/2014 Updated entire policy to reflect the institution wide switch from hard copy textbooks to eBooks. Removed the option for students to opt-out of the provided eBook. Hardbooks will only be provided if a digital copy is unavailable, and no adjustments or reductions to course cost will be made for choosing not to utilize the provided eBook. Added disclosure, stating that eBooks are treated as rentals, usually for a period of 180 days, which covers the full length of the course.

6/25/13 removed hard book text to match the enrollment agreement that was updated last module (M4-2013) Course materials include eBooks, hard books are optional and are the responsibility of the student unless hard books are the only media the books are available in. paragraph 2. LSA
