Help Students Buy Their Books

The cost of textbooks, clickers, lab fees and exams administered through third party vendors continues to increase at a rapid rate.  Students are finding it very difficult to keep up with course assignments without these supplies, particularly in the STEM disciplines.   The loss of students in these fields because of materials costs is a loss of intellectual capital. 

Please consider donating to help students succeed.  Donated funds will be available to students with demonstrated financial need and will be administered through the Financial Aide office.  Click here for donation information (Choose Scholarships or Other).
