Course Materials

Save on textbooks with UMGC's electronic course materials.

You can complete most UMGC 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.

Course Materials for Classes

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.

Online classes: A few select online courses require the use of specific software or content that cannot be accessed at no cost, particularly CMIT courses. When you register for an online course, check the required course materials listed in the online bookstore to determine whether you will need to purchase any course materials.

On-site classes: While most of your on-site classes will use no-cost electronic resources, or the textbook will be automatically provided to you during your first class, some on-site and hybrid classes require the purchase of additional online materials. Review your syllabus that is posted on the web schedule  (3 weeks before term starts) for course materials specific to your upcoming on-site course.

Social work classes: Most of the Salisbury University (SU) social work classes (SOWK) require students to purchase textbooks. You will receive a textbook list 2-4 weeks before each term.
