Cengage + Crown Purple
Crown College is making Cengage Unlimited subscriptions available to all students starting the Fall 2021 semester. The subscription will save students an average of $1,240 per year on course materials. Cengage, the largest US-based education and technology company serving the higher education market, provides course materials to almost half of the 20 million students pursuing higher education.


Dr. Scott Moats, Provost of Crown College, indicated that, “This is a great move for Crown College and its students. With the rising costs of higher education, this is one way Crown College is trying to make college more affordable. By partnering with Cengage Unlimited, Crown College students will have their books and materials on the first day of class and not have to spend additional dollars in many classes. This move is growing trend in higher education, and Crown College is leading the way with this exciting partnership.”

With the average student spending more than $400 annually (and some spending significantly more), the cost of course materials is a top financial stress for students, according to a recent Morning Consult survey. Cengage Unlimited helps alleviate that stress by offering unlimited access to course materials across 70 disciplines and 675 courses.

Subscription costs for Cengage Unlimited are included in the student resource fee. Students will be able to access their Cengage course materials through the university learning management system starting on the first day of class.

“The cost of course materials is a barrier for many students and our partnership aims to address affordability issues while providing access to quality learning,” said Fernando Bleichmar, EVP and General Manager, Higher Education and Skills at Cengage. “We applaud Crown College for taking a proactive approach to lower costs with Cengage Unlimited, and we’re excited for the learning benefit and value students will see as a result.”

Nearly 3 million U.S. college students have subscribed to Cengage Unlimited, and they’ve saved more than $270 million on course materials. For more information, visit
