Books and Supplies Statement

Books and supplies are additional out-of-pocket expenses. Unless the student has financial aid or student loans, they must be prepared to purchase books and supplies. These expenses should not be included with payments for tuition and other related expenses. Such expenses may range from $300 to $700 per semester. The cost of books and supplies depends on the student’s major and their class load.

Proctored Exam Charges

OFTC does not assess any charges for OFTC distance education students’ proctoring services. OFTC students requesting proctoring services at other TCSG institutions will not be assessed proctoring fees, nor will OFTC assess proctoring fees for a student requesting proctoring services provided the student is enrolled at a TCSG college.

OFTC students choosing proctoring services to be rendered by a non-TCSG college or organization may be assessed a proctoring fee at the discretion of the non-TCSG college or organization.

OFTC charges $25.00 to administer proctored exams to students who are not enrolled at TCSG institutions.
