“The eCampus.com ALL Access program is redefining how institutions are combating the frustrations of trying other textbook models and finding they don’t live up to expectations." - Matt Montgomery, President & CEO eCampus.com
LEXINGTON, Ky. (PRWEB) April 30, 2018
eCampus.com, a leading online textbook and course material solutions company, announced that Colorado Mountain College (CMC), with its central offices located in Glenwood Springs, CO, has expanded their partnership with the eCampus.com ALL Access program to provide a sustainable and affordable approach to books and learning materials for all 11 campuses. The partnership began in Spring 2017 when CMC’s Steamboat Springs campus became an early adopter of ALL Access. The program ensures all students receive 100% of their course materials at a significantly reduced cost on the student bill. Due to the early success of this cost-effective solution, Colorado Mountain College, which serves approximately 20,000 students each year and covers over 12,000 square miles across the state, is expanding their partnership in Summer 2018 to include all of the following campuses: Aspen, Buena Vista, Carbondale, Dillon, Breckenridge, Vail Valley at Edwards, Glenwood Springs, Leadville, Rifle, Spring Valley, and Steamboat Springs, as well as via online learning.
For CMC, the old way of doing business was no longer acceptable for a college that is committed to being one of the most innovative and inclusive higher education institutions in the country. eCampus.com ALL Access provided a solution to meet the needs of all stakeholders while addressing the financial burden of course content.
eCampus.com ALL Access is a premier institution-wide course materials solution enabling colleges and universities to provide all of their students with 100 percent of their required course materials by the first day of class. The program includes access to print materials, digital course content, eBooks, custom editions, and more. Students pay a low, fixed cost per credit hour, included in the student bill, providing substantial savings over traditional textbook purchasing methods and ultimately increasing college affordability. According to the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, average annual textbook costs for full-time students are $1,200-$1,600 per year, while CMC expects its newly expanded ALL Access Program to cost a full-time student less than 50% of list.
“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,” said Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com. “The eCampus.com ALL Access program is redefining how institutions are combating the frustrations of trying other textbook models and finding they don’t live up to expectations. ALL Access dramatically reduces course material costs for students, includes FREE shipping, streamlines adoptions for faculty, and ultimately drives academic outcomes. We are thrilled to welcome all Colorado Mountain College campuses to the ALL Access program and applaud these schools who are making college affordability a priority for their students. “
