If you do not wish to purchase textbooks for your course, you will still need to purchase the course manual. Contact the UBC Bookstore.

One of the required materials for all print-based (correspondence) courses is the Learner Package (LRN) which you purchase from the bookstore. This package contains, among other things, the course manual, instructor contact info, a schedule for assignments, mailing supplies. Please review the course package check list and ensure the package is complete. Online courses do not have a Learner Package or course manual (unless otherwise indicated). The instructor contact and all course-related information are found on the WebCT course website.
