Maryland university to save students money by eliminating textbooks

-

We’re all about the collegiate populus being able to save a buck or two. (Or a couple hundred, whichever comes first.) So we were stoked when we read that the hefty debt created by textbook shopping could be on the outs.

USA Today reports that University of Maryland University College is planning to “eliminate” textbooks this fall semester, cutting into the bill that students have to fork over at the campus bookstore.

Per the article:

Kara Van Dam, a vice provost, said Thursday students will be able use a variety of materials like readings and videos online at no cost.

Van Dam says the change will save students thousands of dollars over their academic program. She says other universities are taking similar steps, but UMUC is a front runner in making a transition of this magnitude.

Hearing that steps are finally being taken to save students money without compromising their access to educational materials is a breath of fresh air.
