Some courses have a course materials fee that is paid directly to Germanna. With the exception of MTEs, the course materials fee is part of the includED program, allowing students access all of their course materials within the Blackboard environment. The ebook and digital resources that are typically accessed with an “access code” are now deeply integrated into the course through Blackboard. This benefits students by offering the convenience of paying for course materials with tuition and fees, by eliminating the wait time in bookstore lines, and most importantly, it increases student success by ensuring that all students are prepared the first day of class.
Some 3rd parties do not pay IncludED fees, such as GIBill® benefits, Virginia Prepaid 529, and waivers. In these cases, students are responsible for paying the IncludED fee by the payment deadline.
