Textbook costs impact students at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) and at other colleges and universities across the country. Cuyahoga Community College has worked very closely with students and student leadership across all four campuses to discuss the challenges many students face because of the high cost of textbooks. From those discussions, the College-wide Textbook Affordability Committee, consisting of Tri-C students, administrators, and faculty, was created to improve textbook affordability and exploring new textbook affordability initiatives. See the textbook affordability for information on savings to students in the past year.
Students are encouraged to continue the conversations around textbook affordability and to get involved with your Campus student leadership and always have the opportunity to participate in the College-wide Textbook Affordability Committee.
