Members of EVE University have access to our Skillbook Program, which allows them to obtain reimbursement for up to one million ISK of skillbooks per day. Reimbursement is available to any EVE University member, regardless of their current title. Members who already have the Freshman title or above are able to reimburse themselves directly, and are encouraged to reimburse other members who do not yet have any titles.

Rules and restrictions of the Program

In order to ensure we have enough to go around, we impose some restrictions. Members should ensure that they follow these rules when obtaining reimbursement:

  • Members can request reimbursement up to a total of one million ISK per day, although this can be over several skillbooks. We take "per day" to mean the twenty-four hour period from 00:00 - 23:59 EVE time. We do not partially reimburse skillbooks that exceed the one million ISK daily total.
  • Each skillbook must individually cost one million ISK or less. We do not partially reimburse higher value skillbooks.
  • Skillbooks are reimbursed at the NPC seeded price only. These can be identified as the only ones on the market having a sell order with a 364 day expiry period. Members can buy skillbooks for a higher price off the market if they choose, but the reimbursement will only ever be at the NPC seeded price. This page has a list of the NPC seeded price of various skillbooks, but make sure you double check them in game to ensure they are up to date: Skillbook Program Seeded Price.
  • Members should only request reimbursement for skills they intend to use immediately.
  • Members may only claim reimbursement for skillbooks purchased while they are in EVE University, not before they joined or after they leave.
  • Members may only claim reimbursement for skillbooks used by their main character (the one in EVE University). We do not reimburse skillbooks for alternate characters.

If a member makes a mistake with the skillbook wallet they can report it using Skillbook Wallet Mistake Form.

Obtaining reimbursement

Members with no title

Members who don't yet have any titles within EVE University can still request reimbursement for skillbooks. The procedure is as follows:

1. Ensure that the skillbook qualifies for reimbursement under the above rules
I.e. it can be bought from an NPC seller on the market for one million ISK or less.
2. Ensure that you have a sufficient amount of your one million ISK total daily allowance remaining to cover the cost of the skillbook.
3. Make a post in the Corp chat channel in the following format:
Skillbook name (cost), Skillbook name (cost), Total cost
For example:
Repair Drone Operation (200k), Thermal Shield Compensation (120k), Total: 320k
4. Make sure you link the name of the skillbook
This makes it easier and quicker for people to check that your skillbook qualifies for reimbursement. You can do this either by dragging and dropping the skillbook information page into the chat window, or by typing the name of the skillbook, then highlighting it, right clicking and selecting Auto Link and then Item Type.
5. Wait for someone to notice your request and handle your reimbursement.
Be patient - remember people are often busy playing the game. If you have not been reimbursed within 10 minutes post your request again.
6. Once someone has processed your request, they will ask you to confirm you have received the ISK. Check your wallet and confirm in the channel that it has arrived.

Members with the Freshman title

Members who have the Freshman title (or higher) should reimburse themselves directly from the skillbook wallet. The procedure is as follows:

1. Ensure that the skillbook qualifies for reimbursement under the above rules
I.e. it can be bought from an NPC seller on the market for one million ISK or less.
2. Ensure that you have a sufficient amount of your one million ISK total daily allowance remaining to cover the cost of the skillbook.
3. Open your Wallet from the Neocom: Wallet.png
4. At the top left select the Corporation Wallet tab. Ensure that your active wallet division is EVE University Skillbooks.
5. At the top right click the Take ISK button.
6. A box will pop up, which asks for an amount and a reason.
For the amount enter the total amount of all the skillbooks you are requesting reimbursement for. In the reason field put the names of the skillbooks. If the full names don't fit you can abbreviate them, provided the skillbook is still recognisable.
For example:
Therm Shield Comp (for Thermal Shield Compensation)
7. Select OK and the ISK will be added to your personal wallet.

If the skillbook wallet does not contain enough ISK to fulfill your request, make a post in the Official: Skillbook Wallet is Empty Thread on our forum, so a Manager or Director can top it up. Please do not make any donation into the skillbook wallet directly.

Reimbursing other members

Members who have the Freshman title (or higher) are also able to reimburse other members who do not yet have the appropriate access. As per our rules: Our members are encouraged to balance "self" with "service". The procedure is as follows:

1. First acknowledge the request in the Corp channel so the member requesting reimbursement (and other potential helpers) know it is being handled.
2. Click on the skillbook which should have been linked in the request and ensure that the the skillbook qualifies for reimbursement under the above rules.
I.e. it can be bought from an NPC seller on the market for one million ISK or less. Also check that the total for all the skillbooks is one million ISK or less.
3. Open your Wallet from the Neocom: Wallet.png
4. At the top left select the Corporation Wallet tab. Ensure that your active wallet division is EVE University Skillbooks.
5. At the top right click the Transfer ISK button.
6. A box will pop up which will enable you to search for the character to be reimbursed by name. Search for their character name, select the correct one and press OK.
7. Another box will pop up, which asks for an amount and a reason.
For the amount enter the total amount of all the skillbooks the members is requesting reimbursement for. In the reason field put the names of the skillbooks. If the full names don't fit you can abbreviate them, provided the skillbook is still recognisable. You do not need to enter the name of the member you are reimbursing, as this visible in the wallet logs.
For example:
Therm Shield Comp (for Thermal Shield Compensation)
8. Select OK and the ISK will be transferred to the member's personal wallet.
9. Once you have finished, confirm in the Corp channel that the ISK has been sent, and ask the member to confirm safe receipt.

If the skillbook wallet does not contain enough ISK to fulfill the request, make a post in the Official: Skillbook Wallet is Empty Thread on our forum, so a Manager or Director can top it up. Please do not make any donation into the skillbook wallet directly.

Skillbooks in the hangars

In addition to the skillbook wallet, EVE University has some skillbooks in the hangars, both in our Headquarters and our Campuses. Any member with the Freshman title or above can access the hangars.

If you are taking a skillbook from the hangar, for use by yourself or another member, make sure you lock the stack afterwards. See Taking Items from the Hangar for more information on the procedure. Take only the skillbooks you will immediately use - these skillbooks should not be resold.
