Spring 2022 at TAMIU Means Books IncludED…Free

By the first day of classes this Spring at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), students can have their required course materials available – free of charge.

That’s because this Spring TAMIU is continuing its popular TAMIU Books IncludED program, introduced last Fall.  It provides degree-seeking students with all required course materials free of charge -- including graduate and online students – on the first day of classes. 

TAMIU president Dr. Pablo Arenaz said the Books IncludED program was enthusiastically adopted last fall.

“Based on student feedback here, TAMIU students love the convenience and ease in accessing course materials on Day One. This Fall, 8,457 students participated, enjoying savings in excess of $3.7 million,about $438 on average per student. It’s a huge incentive for both students and their parents,” Dr.  Arenaz noted.

This innovative program is part of TAMIU’s retention strategy to provide additional academic support systems to help students overcome barriers arising from the Pandemic that may otherwise prevent them from completing their education, he said.

Arenaz noted the University will also continue to offer its “Be a Champ, Get the Shot” initiative focused on promoting increased vaccination rates.

Students who submit proof of vaccination have a chance to win free tuition and fees for the Spring semester. Other prizes like Dusty Dollars and other gift cards will be awarded throughout the semester.
