Materials Fee: The course fee (tuition) and your compensation for teaching
(stipend/salary) are not the materials fee. Students pay the course fee directly to
the college, the college pays instructors to teach, and some instructors provide
materials to students for an additional fee. This fee is paid directly to the instructor
by the student, usually at the ﬁrst class. A materials fee cannot be charged to
students unless: A) it has been discussed with the director and B) it has been
listed in the catalog course description.
If you have already consulted with the director regarding your need to
charge a materials fee, please estimate the dollar amount (per student) that
would be payable to you by the students for supplies that you will be providing to
them for their personal use (i.e., art kits, specialized equipment, ﬁlm, etc.).
Handouts: Please include the handouts for this course (if any). Be aware that
most published materials have copyright restrictions.You may place items on
reserve in the library for students to access.
Pre-class Happenings: Are there any preliminary steps for your students prior
to class start (questionnaires, supply lists, reading, etc.)? If so, please attach your
instructions, and we will mail the information to your students. It is important

receive the necessary information. Please plan accordingly.
