    Tuition and Fees Explanation

    Inclusive Courseware Fee


    In an effort to protect students and insure their best interest, the U.S. Department of Education published new rules (34CFR668.161-167) via the Federal Register on October 30, 2015. The Program Integrity and Improvement rules require Wright State University to provide students the ability to opt out of fees charged to a student’s account that are associated with books and/or online access to course materials.

    Inclusive Courseware Fees

    Wright State University takes your education seriously. In addition to negotiating substantial discounts, we coordinate with and the publisher to deliver your books and online access to course materials through Pilot, so it is available the first day of class. Learn more about Inclusive Courseware. Opting out of the Inclusive Courseware Fee, and the automatic delivery of the electronic book and/or access to online course materials, will hinder your success in this class and IS NOT recommended.

    Completing the Opt-Out Process

    You can opt-out online from your Pilot page once your instructor opens the class normally the first day of class. You can drop the Inclusive Courseware during the 100% refund period for that particular class. Go to the academic calendar to confirm dates.

    Opting out must be done online in Pilot by the end of the 100 percent tuition refund period to be considered for removal of the Inclusive Courseware Fee from the student account. Review the academic calendar for important semester specific dates, deadlines, and refund period information.
