No-cost courses at RVCC

A RVCC No-cost course is a course for which there is zero cost for textbooks. You will still use course learning materials, but they are freely available, often through Canvas, library databases or e-book collections, or internet resources. In some cases, a printed version of the materials may be available for purchase from the RVCC Bookstore or from the website where it is published for a minimal fee ($15-$40 typically). You can also print the course materials using your RVCC print allowance at the library and campus computer labs. Your instructor will provide you with more information about how course materials can be accessed.

In certain courses, only specific professors run the course as a No-cost course. Check the "Instructor" column on the following lists to see which professors run no-cost course sections.

There is also a list of Low-cost courses for which all course materials cost less than $45/semester.
