Mercy College of Health Sciences (MCHS) students can now access their course materials through a college-branded bookstore website powered by Akademos. With a single sign-on option, designed for convenience, students have the ability to view their enrolled courses and adopt required course materials. They can also choose to purchase from multiple options including new, used, digital, and through the Akademos Marketplace.
Student readiness, success, and retention are key metrics for Academic Affairs offices across higher education. Changing your course material purchase and delivery service might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re brainstorming ways to improve those metrics, but it shouldn’t be dismissed.
Today’s college students are accustomed to subscription models and flat-rate fees because so many of them grew up with these services. Equitable Access is an innovative course material delivery model that offers students access to their course materials on the first day of class for one low fee, embedded into the cost of tuition.
Here are some of the top ways implementing an Equitable Access model can positively impact your students:
Equitable Access is transforming the way textbooks and course materials are thought about on campuses across the country, but it’s more than just a trending topic. The model allows students access to all required course materials on the first day of class for one low fee, embedded into the cost of tuition. It can drastically drive the cost of textbooks down for your student population. But can Equitable Access also positively impact your bottom line?
The Largest Tribal College University (TCU) in the United States, Navajo Technical University (NTU), partnered with Akademos to foster student access and affordability.
