Tuition Covers the Cost of Your Learning Materials

With the IncludED program, most required learning materials are included in the cost of tuition. This includes textbooks, online publisher content, software, art supplies, science lab kits, and even certain medical supplies.

As a student, you are automatically enrolled in the program when you register for classes. This means that if you’re taking a class, you should receive the course materials for that class on or near the first day of class.

Types of Learning Materials

Electronic course materials will be available on eCampus. Access codes will be mailed or emailed to you and physical or print materials will be mailed to your mailing address on file.

IMPORTANT: Please take a moment to visit eConnect to make sure Dallas College has your current email and mailing address.
