TCC To Eliminate Math Textbook Cost

October 23, 2018

Tallahassee, Fla. (October 23, 2018) – Tallahassee Community College is planning to replace a $137 math textbook expense with an open educational resource fee of only $15. The savings to TCC students will begin with the 2019 Spring Semester, if approved by the District Board of Trustees at its regular November 19, 2018, meeting.

The new $15 Laboratory Fee for Math for Liberal Arts (MGF1106) will provide students with online access to the required textbook, which otherwise would cost $137 for a print edition.

Annually, the College reviews all fees and their impact on students. Any adjustment to student fees, such as the cost for laboratory materials, supplies or online access to textbooks, requires public notice and Board approval.
