To better calculate the cost of attending college, Iowa Central will charge an ebook fee of $27 per credit hour at the time of enrollment.  For example, at most bookstores the textbook for BUS-102 Introduction to Business is $196 in printed form.  The ebook charge for this 3 credit hour course will only be $81 and a savings of $115.

In this example, you can see that a student utilizing an ebook has major cost saving benefits versus a physical textbook. In most cases, this will save students substantial amounts of money.

Access to the ebook will be within iNET under the Read Me First and Syllabus documents of each course. There you will find a link to the ebook. No need to worry about going to a site to pay for the ebook or trying to have the book shipped to you before the start of the class. Your access to the materials is all within the course.

In accordance with federal regulations set by the U.S. Department of Education, students who choose to opt out of utilizing the ebook services provided by Iowa Central will not be charged for the $27/credit ebook fee.  Students who choose this option will not have access to the ebook and the student will be responsible for obtaining the required textbooks and other materials for the course(s).
