Find Your ZEN


ZEN is the ZTC (Zero Textbook Cost) Enrollment Program at Ventura College, and it's our goal to increase ZTC student enrollment by creating more zero textbook cost courses for students.

Do you think it's problematic that our student population would pay just $46 per unit for a class but more than $150 for a textbook? That isn't exactly equity in motion! By participating in ZEN, you can help make college more affordable for more students.

We understand that making the switch to ZTC takes a lot of time and resources, which can be tedious for instructors. But you are not alone! ZEN is here to assist faculty in developing high-quality, academically rigorous ZTC courses. Click on the Modules tab to learn more and get started... Register Today
