Prerequisite Course Textbook Purchasing

General

Some of our prerequisite courses also require that students purchase access to an additional online platform*, which may contain lab simulations or additional graded assessments. Please follow the directions below to ensure that you have the correct materials prior to the start of your classes.

*Note: More information regarding the functionality and usage of these platforms/programs will be found in your online classroom in Blackboard. However, your online classroom will not be available until one week prior to the beginning of the semester.
