Other Expenses to Consider
BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE
All students enrolled in courses at UACCM are encouraged to secure their own computing device for use in their studies. While there are a wide range of choices available, students must acquire a device that meets or exceeds the specifications listed on the Student Technology Requirements webpage to be compatible with the systems in use on our campus.
TEXTBOOKS AND SUPPLIES
Many courses require students to purchase specific textbooks and/or supplies. Students should visit the University Bookstore in person or their website online each semester to see the materials required for each class. The University Bookstore can provide prices for the materials that can be purchased from them.
Each student is allotted $30 worth of copies at the beginning of each semester. For this amount, a student could print 500 black/white copies or 250 color copies. In the event this allotment is depleted, the student will need to purchase more prints using the PaperCut online service to manage printing. Additional prints can be purchased in bulk at a rate of 6 cents per page for black/white and 12 cents per page for color. Unused prints will not rollover from semester to semester.
