Take a Class Without Paying for Textbooks

Did you know that CCA offers low- or no-cost textbooks and class materials for certain classes?

Yes, it’s true – and you can access these materials for upcoming fall classes!

Through a grant from the Colorado Open Educational Resources Council and the Colorado Department of Higher Education, CCA has developed free or low-cost materials for five courses.

These courses include general education classes in subjects such as English, History, and Sociology.

The course materials – called Open Educational Resources (OER) – are teaching and learning materials that are free for students because they are in the public domain or licensed to be used and revised freely. They can be used by CCA faculty and instructors to provide quality education without the excessive cost of textbooks or proprietary course materials.

CCA has marked classes that have zero textbook costs with the code ZTC and classes that require textbooks and/or materials that are in total less than $20 for the class as low-cost textbooks with the code of LTC.

A red arrow points to the phrase "No Textbook Cost" in a sample course listing on Navigate.
