Help cut costs for students by adopting zero-cost textbooks

The CSU and Sac State are committed to helping students succeed by lowering barriers, one of which is the daunting cost of textbooks. Did you know some of our students have to choose between groceries and books? Many quality free and low-cost textbooks are available for faculty to adopt so that our students can save money.

We encourage faculty to please do your share in reducing textbook costs for our students by participating in the Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) campaign. The Hornet Bookstore, University Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning have teamed up to provide the resources and support you need.
