Learning resources come in a variety of forms:
These resources are available to students directly or through WGU's affiliations with third-party education providers. These learning resources are detailed in your Degree Plan. You
will work with your student mentor
to select the learning resources that best meet your needs in your development of competencies.
WGU charges a $145 Resource Fee each term, which covers your use of the library, the new e-textbooks, and many other new learning resources. The majority of learning resources are included in the cost of tuition, with the primary exception of textbooks which you are responsible for purchasing.

For most assessments, you will be provided a course of study that outlines the textbooks you will need to purchase to develop the required competencies. Textbooks are not included as part of tuition, so you will be responsible for purchasing what is required.
At WGU, we intend to keep the cost of your education as affordable as possible. That is why we recently implemented e-textbooks into our coursesmost of which are included into the cost of your tuition. The new e-textbooks, on average, are saving WGU Tennessee students several hundred dollars in textbook costs. More importantly, the e-texts are carefully integrated with the courses of study and are helping students more effectively learn, prepare, and pass assessments.
The WGU library gives students access to thousands of full-text journals, magazines, newspapers, and ebooks. Students can get research help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from our "Ask a Librarian" chat service.
