ALS / OER Announcements
Did you know?
By submitting your textbook adoption information to the campus bookstore, especially if you do not have an assigned textbook or are using OER (open educational resources, free, publicly available materials to your students), we are able to mark courses as Zero Cost & Low Cost in the general catalog. Instructions & forms to submit your textbook adoptions can be found in this Google Drive folder
