In an effort to improve textbook affordability and convenience for students, Clark University chooses Akademos, an innovative online college bookstore service dedicated to supporting student success.
Akademos, Inc., a leading provider of integrated online bookstores and marketplaces for educational institutions, is happy to announce that Clark University, a private, non-profit university located in Worcester, MA named by Forbes as one the country’s most entrepreneurial schools, has joined its growing list of partner institutions.
Beginning summer 2016, Clark University students can shop for textbooks in the format of their choice across new, used, rental or eBook options and place orders anytime, anywhere through the mobile optimized online college bookstore. Akademos’ best-in-class online shopping platform and deep SIS integration allows students to complete their entire order for a term in less than 5 minutes — and save an average 60% off the list price of their textbooks and course materials when ordering through the exclusive Akademos Marketplace.
“We are very pleased that Akademos is helping Clark University improve the textbook purchasing process and experience for our students,” said Julie Dolan, Executive Vice President and Treasurer of Clark University. “The cost of textbooks is an important consideration for students, so transitioning to Akademos’ online bookstore will be of real value to our students and their families.”
Students will be able to log in to Clark University’s virtual bookstore and view an automatically-generated list of textbooks associated specifically with their registered courses. As an added benefit, students will also have the option to pay with their Clark OneCard. By improving the delivery of the right course materials at the right prices, Clark University is confident in its ability to positively impact student achievement.
“I am pleased to welcome Clark University to Akademos,” said Chief Executive Officer John Squires. “We look forward to using our vast experience serving colleges across the country to deliver a world-class eCommerce platform for Clark University students, faculty, and administrators.”
