ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) — Anyone who has pursued a higher education knows how expensive it can be. Cengage, a publishing house, is working to ease the financial burden for students in Rochester.
In 2018, Cengage Publishing launched a subscription-based model that gives students access to the entire library of etexts and homework learning platforms. So far, with 1,200 users per year, Rochester Community and Technical College students have saved over $527,000 with this subscription.
This fall, another program is launched called “Cengage Unlimited Institutional”. The agreement with the RCTC bookstore allows students to have access to learning materials from the first day of class. It is automatically billed to their tuition, priced at $124.99.
“At the community college level in particular, these may not be your typical students,” said Peter Knuston, Cengage’s chief accounting officer. “It can be students who have a child or two, who go back to school. And they might already be on a tight budget or have other constraints.
Knuston thinks Cengage is the most affordable and fair solution.
The program is also available at Winona State University.
