Campus Textbook Access Program

The University of Houston-Victoria Campus Textbook Access Program (CTAP) is an exciting program that provides undergraduate students, regardless of major or number of hours taken, access to course materials on or before the first day of class and at significant savings over purchasing new retail books. We piloted this innovation at UHV in the Fall 2023 semester and will continue this program in the Spring 2024 semester.

Students who register for participating in CTAP pilot classes will automatically be part of the program. CTAP fees including 8.25% state and county sales tax, are conveniently and automatically charged to your student bill. 

How It Will Work

How It Will Work

Students who register for participating CTAP pilot classes will automatically be part of the program. Students may opt out of CTAP on a semester-by-semester basis. For Spring 2024, the opt-out deadline is January 31.

Comprehensive Coverage

Comprehensive Coverage

Be prepared for class on your first day by receiving your digital materials on or before the first day of classes. The length of time you can access these materials varies, but materials will usually be available for at least 180 days.

Convenient Access

Convenient Access

You will receive an email with a link to the materials for your class, or you will access materials via a link in Canvas, the University's Learning Management System (LMS). You can access the materials via mobile device as well.

Simple Billing

Simple Billing

CTAP fees are conveniently added to your student fee bill. Like other UHV fees and charges, this amount is payable by financial aid or personal funds. If you have a payment plan, the CTAP charge will be included in payment plan calculations to determine recurring payment amounts.
