BookReady Program

The BookReady program was created to help save students money and time. The rate for returning, transfer and graduate students is $22 per registered credit hour.  This means if you are registered for 15 credits, your books for the semester will only cost $330.00 – it doesn’t matter how many books or what the books are, and it doesn’t matter if you’re an undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral student. The total charge will be added to your student account; if you add or drop a class before the add/drop deadline, your account is automatically updated, and your books are adjusted.

  • Students have the opportunity to opt-out of the program at no additional cost to them by the last day of add/drop of each semester without penalty.



TechReady: Allows for all first year students to receive a FREE laptop to keep forever.

  • Returning and transfer students may also apply to be a part of this program and will receive a free laptop with approval by emailing for further information.

MetaReady: FTIC and student leaders will receive a Free Oculus VR headset that has various developmental experiences offered through the Office of Student Development and Advocacy
