At RVCC we understand that pricey textbooks can be a barrier to learning.  When you are searching for classes, look for the NOLO tag on the course title.  This indicates that course materials in the class are below $40.  How do we do this?  Using a mix of library resources, free online materials, and open education resources, some classes are able to achieve no or low cost (NOLO) materials!

Important: Because some NoLo courses use electronic materials rather than printed textbooks, you may need regular and reliable Internet access in order to complete course work. NoLo only refers to textbook cost.  Please make sure to check courses for lab or technology fees. If you have any questions, please contact the instructor for the course you’re considering!
