Victoria College has worked with publishers to get your course materials at the lowest available cost. These materials are required by your instructor. If you decide that you do not want to participate, you will need to OPT-OUT of the program by the ORD (official reporting date). Some courses may also have courseware (i.e., Connect, MindTap, Webassign, MyLab, etc…) that accompany your e-book. You may have trouble finding the correct e-book and/or courseware required for your course, so please be aware that in some cases, opting out will make passing your course impossible. Before choosing to OPT-OUT, contact your instructor and/or the bookstore.
To OPT-OUT, please look for the bookstore email that will be sent to your pirate portal email account two weeks before the first class day. The bookstore email will have the OPT-OUT instructions for you to follow and the deadline to complete the OPT-OUT option.
After the ORD (official reporting date), you will not be able to OPT-OUT.
Majority of publishers offer a low cost print edition of your e-book to purchase in the bookstore. This low cost edition is specially priced for those who do not OPT-OUT of the e-book course fee. The low cost print edition will be available in the bookstore after the ORD (official reporting date). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing information and/or availability.
