A new academic year is here, and so are big opportunities for students to save on ever-rising college costs.

Cengage Unlimited — a textbook subscription service in its second year that includes over $230 worth of free learning services — is expected to save students another $100 million this academic year, bringing the total savings close to $160 million, according to a recent press release.

The service gives students access to over 22,000 products, which includes ebooks, online homework access codes and study guides, all at $119.99 a semester (or $179.99 a year).

Beyond course materials, Cengage Unlimited also includes college success and career support; including activities in time management, goal setting, financial literacy and more. Students can explore career paths, assess their skills, build resumes and take advantage of career-readiness support, including in-demand soft skills training.

Since launching in August 2018, the service has a million subscriptions sold, with sixty colleges and universities partnering directly with Cengage to make the subscription service available to students at a discount.

Cengage has also added another new partner: Dashlane, offering more money-saving opportunities, such as 1 month of Chegg Study Pack and 60 minutes of tutoring and 6 months of free access to Quizlet.

According to Michael E. Hansen, CEO of Cengage, “The affordability crisis in higher education isn’t going to be resolved overnight, but innovative, new models are making a difference when it comes to lowering the cost of course materials. With a Cengage Unlimited subscription, students put savings in their pockets, get a seamless learning experience across courses, and get unlimited access to quality content and tools for academic and career success.”

In the words of a student, University of Texas at El Paso student and Cengage ambassador, Alan Moya, says, “I personally make use of textbook rentals, study tools, the Career Center, as well as Quizlet and Chegg. I think Cnegage recognizes that in order to appeal to the next generation of college students, digital access to textbooks and course materials is a must. Cengage Unlimited is disrupting the traditional college textbook market by offering affordable and convenient access to textbooks.”
