FSCJ ACCESS Brings Cost Savings to Students

FSCJ ACCESS Brings Cost Savings to Students
We continue our work with Follett to bring students FSCJ ACCESS, which gives them the guaranteed lowest prices for digital learning materials for a select group of classes. When students register for participating classes, they are automatically enrolled in the program and prices are included with tuition, with the option to opt out if they choose.
During Fall Term 2021, 4,828 students participated for a total cost savings of more than $262,000!
FSCJ ACCESS was even featured in a McGraw Hill Case Study recently. Read the full report here. Below are the takeaways:
  • FSCJ ACCESS course material prices average $18.89 per credit hour - below the Florida College System’s definition of affordable.
  • Faculty see improvements in students’ readiness to learn in FSCJ ACCESS classes.
  • 90% of faculty say they would teach another class in FSCJ ACCESS.
  • 97% of students say they would take another FSCJ ACCESS class.
  • Students saved more than $350,000 on course material in the first year of FSCJ ACCESS.
We are excited to see this program continue to grow to help our students complete their classes successfully - and affordably. If you have questions or would like to learn more, email ACCESS@fscj.edu.
