Many courses have required textbooks. Students typically order textbooks online from WSU's bookstore, The Bookie.

Media Rental Fees

Many courses have required media or other course materials (e.g., Media Online, DVDs, CDs). Media provided by WSU will be charged to students' accounts to be paid with tuition. Some courses may require students to obtain certain titles by renting them from a local outlet.

Lab Kit Fees

Some courses have lab kits that will be automatically sent to you when you register for a course. Do not return opened lab kits.

The fees for media and lab kits are listed in the WSU Online course descriptions and are charged to students' accounts to be paid with WSU tuition.

Proctoring Fees

Some courses may require you to take proctored exams, which are exams taken under the supervision of an acceptable proctor. Many proctors charge a fee to the student. When contacting a proctor, students should ask about a fee. If a course has exams that require a proctor, it will be noted in the syllabus.

WSU Writing Portfolio Fees

Global Campus students completing the WSU Writing Portfolio will be assessed $50.00 from the WSU Writing Programs for the costs associated with administering the portfolio. Students choosing to take the timed writing exam online will be charged an additional $18 fee at the time they schedule their exam. The fee is payable by Visa or Mastercard.
