ZTC and LTC Classes

This page lists all Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) and Low Textbook Cost (LTC) classes as designated by MiraCosta faculty, by semester (select the semester in the Filter box below).

ZTC classes typically use no-cost digital textbooks and homework systems. ZTC classes may have optional print texts that are not free; ZTC classes may also have other required materials such as lab supplies, calculator, test forms, etc. which are not free. LTC-designated classes use course materials which may be purchased new for $40 or less at the MiraCosta bookstore.

In SURF, all ZTC and LTC classes are marked with these logos:

Zero textbook cost logo     
Students can search SURF for ZTC and LTC classes. See directions on how to do so.
Faculty can view directions to designate classes as LTC or ZTC in SURF.

The college strives to ensure that the ZTC and LTC designations are accurate; however, under some circumstances, faculty may have to adjust selection of instructional materials and this can affect course material costs. It may also be necessary to change instructors. Replacement faculty have academic freedom to choose instructional materials regardless of costs and are not obligated to use free course materials selected by an instructor previously assigned to the class.
