The Fall 2018 Subscription You Need: Cengage Unlimited

By Lorena Roberts on March 16, 2018

College students across the country are struggling to afford their textbooks. On top of increasing tuition, living expenses, and grocery money, textbooks have become another significant expense for college students. However, the new partnership between Cengage, the education and technology company built for learners, and Follett could be the answer to every college student’s prayers, according to a recent press release!


The new partnership is resulting in Cengage Unlimited: the subscription that allows college students access to over 22,000 products across 70 different disciplines. Launching this fall, a semester subscription is $119.99, allowing college students to access their class materials online. Should you prefer materials in print form, rent your materials for free – just pay the $7.99 shipping expense. If you’d like a one-year subscription, Cengage Unlimited offers a discounted price of $179.99.

Companies like Amazon and Chegg have been offered access to educational materials online for a while now. However, students are sometimes worried about renting class materials out of fear they’ll need a certain textbook in the future. Feeling the need to keep a textbook is a typical thought college students have these days. Whether it’s for the next class in sequence, or simply because the textbook was helpful, collecting textbooks isn’t a bad idea. Cengage Unlimited has already foreseen this issue and will give students the option to keep up to six textbooks in their “digital locker” after their subscription ends.

By partnering with Follett, Cengage now has access to all 80,000 schools, 1,200 campus stores, and 1,600 virtual stores. As textbooks become seemingly more expensive every year, college students are growing more and more frustrated with the amount of money required to be prepared for class. But the new partnership between Cengage and Follett will create access to affordable educational resources, aiming to meet the ever-growing demand from college students.

Before you spend an ungodly amount on textbooks for the semester, consider buying a subscription to Cengage Unlimited for convenient, online access to your textbooks. Visit their website to sign up for email updates so you can be ready to sign up as soon as the subscription launches this fall!
