Helpful Tips

Post 9/11 Students: Are you aware that some courses have a digital book fee? Be aware that VA will not cover the cost for this book fee because you will receive a book stipend from the VA for this credit course. Please read information about the book program and decide if it works best for you. Know your options now to prevent unexpected costs at the end of the semester. Click here for more information.
