The Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) logo is for classes that offer free resources for students. In other words, if students do not have to purchase reading materials or resources for their class, then the cost of the class for them is free, and the logo can be attached to the course. In order to get the logo attached to your course, you must go through the textbook adoption process and indicate that your class has no associated cost for reading materials or online resources.
Please see below for more information about the ZTC logo.
It can be a little confusing about what courses do and do not count as ZTC. Below you will find common examples of what is and is not ZTC.
* Classes that require materials such as art supplies, lab materials, calculators, etc. can still get the ZTC designation.
If there is a cost to students, whether or not the resource is purchased through the bookstore, it is not ZTC, with the exception of class materials (see asterisk above).
