Books are included in tuition for students enrolled in Undergraduate courses but not Graduate courses. How do you know the difference? Undergraduate courses have course numbers that are in the 100s to 500s; Graduate level courses have course numbers ranging from 600s to 700s. An undergraduate student taking a graduate level course will be responsible for purchasing books for that course. A graduate student taking an undergraduate course will enjoy the benefit of the books for that course being included in their tuition rates.
Pfeiffer University is a member of Acadeum, a consortium of colleges and universities that allows a Pfeiffer student to take an equivalent online course from another consortium member school. The circumstances that permit a student take a course through Acadeum are specific and narrowly defined. Because the course is not being taught at/by Pfeiffer University, any text required for the Acadeum course will be the financial responsibility of the student.
Typically, Undergraduate students take UG courses, and Graduate students take GR courses. However, there are times when students take courses that do not align with their division. Whether the costs of books is included in your tuition is not a function of the student or their degree program; it's a function of the course in which they enroll and the division of that course.
