Students using the digital platforms also have the option of free print rentals, paying only a $7.99 shipping fee.  

In addition to distributing Cengage Unlimited, an innovative co-marketing agreement will leverage Akademos' strengths in ecommerce and our deep relationships with partner institutions, to identify eligible students and illustrate the value of the subscription based on enrollment and course materials pricing information. This embedded virtual bookstore experience will ensure that every student from all of our participating institutions is aware of Cengage Unlimited's value, supporting a continuing drive to ensure affordability of course materials for students. 

"As we continue to build momentum with Cengage Unlimited, our partnership with Akademos will open access to more learners while also delivering targeted information about Cengage Unlimited to help today's students understand their digital options," said Todd Markson, Chief Strategy Officer, Cengage. "The truly embedded experience within the student purchase path will ensure students make the right, affordable choice and will get access to their courses and a wide array of high quality materials."
