Course Packets

A course packet is ordered by UT faculty as a compilation of course materials put into one easy-to-access place for students in an inexpensive manner. Course packets can act as a supplement to or a replacement of a textbook, or it can follow the curriculum that the instructor has personally designed. Faculty will instruct their students at the beginning of the semester as to whether a course packet is required for a course. 


Course packets sales open approximately two weeks before classes start. Packets will be posted for sale as they become available. Some packets may be available in either PDF or printed version.
