Members of EVE University may take advantage of The Skillbook Program, providing vital skillbooks valued at 1 million ISK or less. New members of EVE University may request reimbursements via the Corp chat channel. EVE Universty members with Freshman status can get reimbursement for the purchase of a skillbook through accessing the Skillbook Wallet. Additionally skillbooks are available in the Corporation Hangar for all members with at least Alpha status, Sophomores and higher.

The Skillbook Program

Skillbook Reimbursement

E-UNI members with Freshman title status or greater are provided with access to the "Skillbook Wallet" corporation wallet. This allows them to be reimbursed the cost of skillbooks with a value of 1million ISK or lower. Those members without the Freshman title may still request reimbursement as outlined below under Members with no Title.

Rules for Reimbursement:

  1. Skillbooks are reimbursed at NPC seeded prices only. These can be identified on the market as sell orders with 364 day expiry. If the skillbook in question is not NPC seeded, then it is not covered by this program. A list of NPC seeded skillbooks and their seeded prices is maintained here.
  2. There is no reimbursement, neither full nor partial, for skillbooks more than 1m ISK in price. By the time you get to training these skills, you are expected to be able to afford them yourself.
  3. Students may request an unlimited number of skillbooks each day, as long as their total cost is 1m ISK or lower for that day. Please ensure they are skills you can use immediately - don't go crazy filling your head with skills you don't plan to train for weeks, the wallet will be there later. For tracking purposes, each day is a 24-hour period from 00:00 - 23:59 EVE time. Any more frequent will lead to an investigation.
  4. Students may not request reimbursement for skills purchased or otherwise obtained while not in the Uni. The Skillbook Program is only for skillbooks needed currently by the student and they may only request reimbursement of those books that qualify that they purchase while in the Uni. This is one of the reasons it's recommended that a pilot completes as many of the Career Tutorial paths as possible as they gain many skillbooks for free.

Where possible, members with access should check the corporation hangars prior to using the skillbook wallet.

Skillbooks from Hangars

Members with Alpha status or greater are encouraged to check the corporation hangars when looking for skillbooks. The skillbook containers are refreshed periodically, and hold a vast majority of common skills.

Members may take one of each required skillbooks that they can use, but must follow the normal corp hangar process and ensure any stacks are re-locked. Skillbooks may also be provided to other members who do not currently have hangar access, however excessive usage of this may lead to investigation.

It should go without saying that skillbooks provided are not for resale, and like any other E-UNI service, abuse of this may lead to your dismissal. Remember that skillbooks, as with all corp resources, are not for use by alternate characters or accounts.

To request a skillbook from the hangar if you do not have access, simply ask in the Corp chat channel. Where at all possible, please Auto Link the skillbook and type the ISK requested.

Reimbursing Other Members
