Since 1932, Southern New Hampshire University's mission has focused on providing affordable access to higher education. Affordable access also includes the cost of learning resources too. That's why, in SNHU's ongoing commitment to making education more affordable, the university has refused the usual commission most schools receive from publishers and pass the savings along to students.
From October 2014 to September 2015, SNHU saved students more than $4 million on course materials, putting $520,000 back into student pockets; in addition, free shipping is offered every day.
SNHU continues to invest in learning resources, textbooks on steroids some might say. More than 50,000 students have used learning resources in 250 courses from October 2014 through September 2015. E-book availability continues to increase, up 523 percent since 2013. The result? A sharp rise in student success.
With 24/7 support to our online bookstore, students can get the help they need, regardless of time of day or night. We're not resting on our laurels, though. Stay tuned as we develop easier ways to shop by class schedule, explore how students will be able to access lower-cost materials through MBS marketplace and continue to renegotiate book prices and use more e-books.
On Sept. 14 and 15, SNHU had an opportunity to extend its goal of creating real, measurable impact in local communities through its ongoing partnership with Major League Soccer.
