"Textbooks are not optional; they are integral. The ALL Access program provides us the tools to manage this efficiently and effectively." - Bill Muse, VP for Administration and Finance at Schreiner University
LEXINGTON, Ky. (PRWEB) May 14, 2018
After an extensive search for a partner to meet their textbook needs, eCampus.com ALL Access was selected based on their cost-effective model and robust management platform. Beginning in fall 2018, the eCampus.com ALL Access program will provide Schreiner students with 100% of their required course materials at a significantly reduced cost, included in the cost of attendance. After students register for their courses, course materials are reserved and individually packaged for each student based on student schedule. Students will then pick up all materials before the first day of class in Schreiner Outfitters, or shipped directly to the student residence. By providing course materials ahead of the first day of class, the ALL Access program ensures students are prepared for success while decreasing the cost of higher education.
The ALL Access program is part of the eCampus.com course material solutions suite, which has helped over 200 institutions save more than $350 million on textbooks. The program was expanded in 2017 after the company acquired Rafter assets, further complimenting eCampus.com’s existing one-price models for higher education. Applauded for its cutting-edge technologies that help colleges and universities transform the entire process of course materials management for the student, the campus, and the faculty, ALL Access makes it simple and affordable for students to get all the materials they need for their courses with a flat rate price. This reduced fee is factored directly into their tuition, creating a predictable expense and helping students combat the rising cost of textbooks, with savings up to 50% or more. Equally important, the program helps to increase student success by providing the course materials they need from Day 1.
"At Schreiner, we have long believed that ensuring undergraduate students have all of their required course materials on or before the first day of class is critical to student success,” said Bill Muse, Vice President for Administration and Finance at Schreiner University. “Textbooks are not optional; they are integral. The ALL Access program provides us the tools to manage this efficiently and effectively. The solution allows us to budget and strategically manage the university's investment in course materials, and the integration with our ERP makes it a seamless process.”
Schreiner University was a pioneer in the institution-wide all inclusive model launched by Rafter. They played an instrumental role in the development of the in-tuition textbook program, providing valuable insights on how to combat rising textbook costs with a flat rate fee for all course materials. The institution is pleased to partner with eCampus.com to ensure the successful long-term sustainability of their preferred all-inclusive business model.
Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com, commented on the Schreiner partnership:
“The ever-increasing cost of course materials demands an alternative approach to ensure students have the course content they need and are prepared for academic success from Day 1. The eCampus.com ALL Access program dramatically reduces course material costs for students, including free shipping, streamlines adoptions for faculty, and ultimately drives academic outcomes. Faculty enjoy the academic freedom to adopt content in their preferred format, regardless of publisher or platform. We are thrilled to welcome Schreiner University to the ALL Access program and applaud this institution who is making college affordability a priority for their students.”
According to Bill Muse, “Faculty love the ALL Access program both because they can start teaching the first day, and because the adoption tool is so intuitive and helpful. Students love it because they walk in the bookstore, show their ID, and they are handed their bundle of books -- no shopping, no stress, and no separate cost. "
