Course Material Fee Opt-Out
Opting-out of the Course Material Fee
In an effort to protect students and ensure their best interest, the US Department of Education published new rules (34CFR668.161-167) via the Federal Register on October 30, 2015. The Program Integrity and Improvement rules require Northern Essex Community College to provide students the ability to opt-out of course material fees associated with books or supplies.
NECC is working in partnership with Follett and the publishers to ensure students get their text books/course materials at a lower cost and in a timely manner. Please note that opting-out of the fee and the automatic delivery of the electronic book and materials, may hinder your success in the class and it is not recommended.
Complete the Form
Students wishing to exercise their right to opt-out of an eligible course material fee should download the Course Material Fee Opt-Out Form, complete, sign, and bring it to the book store.
