Cengage Launches New Textbooks Subscription Option to Help Students Save

By Uloop Staff on August 5, 2020

Whether students are heading back to school on campus or will be attending classes virtually, they have another option for affordable textbooks with the commercial launch of Cengage Unlimited eTextbooks, according to a recent press release. After the success of the Cengage Unlimited subscription, which has helped 2.2 million college students save over $200 million on textbooks and course materials, Cengage Unlimited eTextbooks will give students access to 14,000 eTextbooks, study tools and more for $69.99 a semester.

“You don’t have to look far to see that the pandemic has widened education disparities and put higher education out of reach for more students simply because they cannot afford it,” said Cengage CEO Michael E. Hansen. “While at the same time, more than 40 million adults are out of work and many will need to enroll in some post-secondary education in order to reskill and find sustainable employment. Expanding Cengage Unlimited to provide another affordable option for course materials helps remove one barrier for current and prospective students.”

For less than the average price of one print textbook, Cengage Unlimited eTextbooks includes thousands of eTextbooks and free access to college success and career support, as well as free resources from Kaplan, Quizlet, Evernote and Dashlane. In addition to the eTextbooks and other tools, students who prefer print can rent up to four free hardcopy textbooks, with a flat shipping fee per book. Students may upgrade to a full Cengage Unlimited subscription that includes online homework access codes/courseware.

With Cengage Unlimited eTextbooks, students can also access all of their Cengage eTextbooks offline via the free Cengage Mobile App. Once downloaded, students can highlight, make notes, search and bookmark material, regardless of whether they are connected to the internet or working offline.

Students can purchase Cengage Unlimited eTextbooks through Cengage and at online or campus bookstores. Students can also use financial aid to purchase a subscription.
