Transforming affordability

Up to one-third of students don’t purchase their course materials in an effort to save money, but without these materials, they’re unable to effectively engage in class.* The transition to digital ensures every student’s access to essential materials from the first day of class — at a price point they can afford.


Transforming access

72% of undergraduate students are employed either full- or part-time,* quickly making the atypical student typical. In order for academic programs to fit the lives of today’s working students, and ensure equitable access for all learners, institutions are transitioning to digital options with blended and fully online programs.
