Course Materials

Learn about course materials and textbooks, most of which are available electronically to help students save costs.

At University of Maryland Global Campus, we are committed to saving you time and money by reducing or eliminating the need to purchase textbooks and other course materials.

Course Materials for Undergraduate Classes

At UMGC, you can complete most undergraduate degrees without purchasing textbooks, thanks to electronic resources that are available at no cost, are immediately available through your online classroom, and are always up to date.

Depending on the course, these open educational resources may include electronic textbooks, lectures, websites, and selected documents and media. Program chairs and faculty members have customized these materials to be more relevant to your course and to include the latest industry information.

Some courses do require the use of specific software or content that cannot be accessed for free. When you register for a course, check the required course materials listed in the Interactive Undergraduate Schedule of Classes to determine whether you will need to purchase any course materials. These materials are not included on your student account or added with your tuition and fees and must be paid out of pocket.

Course Materials for Graduate Classes

You can complete your graduate degree without paying for a single textbook. We’ve replaced nearly every textbook for graduate courses with no-cost electronic resources. As with undergraduate course materials, these electronic resources are tailored to each course and are immediately available through your online classroom.

Degree Requirements

Plan your course schedule with information on catalogs, prior and workplace learning, graduation, and more.
