Normally students are required to provide their own instructional and other materials for a credit or non-credit course if those materials are of continuing value to the student outside the classroom and provided that such materials are not solely or exclusively available from the district.
In certain cases a course materials fee is charged. This fee covers materials that are required for health and safety reasons or material provided in lieu of other generally available but more expensive materials which would otherwise be required. Classes for which a materials fee is charged are specifically designated in the printed schedule of classes. A master list of approved course materials fees is maintained in the Office of Instruction.
