Students are not required to purchase any textbooks for any of the four courses of this Institute. Instead, a course fee of $50 per course will be charged to each student for materials, which include electronic copies of all reading materials and class lectures. This fee is applied to for-credit and non-credit students alike.

Students registered as "special students limited" may accumulate a maximum of 16 credits total during the Summer term. After 16 credits have been earned, application to and acceptance in "special student regular" or degree status are required.
