The University of Cincinnati (UC) is proud to do all we can to lower costs to students. Aligned with the Ohio Department of Higher Education to reduce the cost of education for college students, UC has developed and shared strategies with other Ohio institutions to improve the learning experience of students.

UC is able to leverage new technology, open educational resources, and the collective buying power of our students to reduce costs, improve delivery, and better serve scholarly needs. Through collaboration with faculty and other UC partners, we have identified specific, effective practices for finding affordable textbooks.

This website is designed to explain our cost-saving approaches and how they support students and faculty.
