Georgia Military College Partners with Akademos To Lower Textbook and Course Material Costs for Students
With the goal of providing more affordable access to education for all students, Georgia Military College’s Online Campus partners with Akademos to launch an online bookstore aimed at delivering significant discounts on course materials.
Akademos, Inc., a leading textbook affordability platform for Colleges and Universities, announced today that Georgia Military College Online Campus (http://www.gmc.edu), a public-independent educational institution comprised of a junior college and a separate preparatory school, has joined its list of partner schools.
Starting this summer, GMC students will be able to order their course materials through the new school-sanctioned online bookstore and seamlessly choose between New, Used, Marketplace, Rental and eBook options, dramatically expanding their access to lower cost textbooks. With a design optimized for smartphones and tablets, students can conveniently place orders anytime, anywhere through the new Akademos’ powered service.
“At Georgia Military College, we are continually seeking ways to help students successfully complete their degree as quickly and affordably as possible—and Akademos’ online bookstore aligns perfectly with this objective,” said Jody Yearwood, Executive Director of the Online Campus. “We offer all of our Associate Degrees completely online and charge no out of state tuition fees. And now we will offer students a best-in-class textbook delivery platform with competitive prices, further reducing the expense of education for our students.”
“Like a growing number of institutions, we recognize that affordable access to a high quality education is the cornerstone of Georgia Military College,” said Chief Executive Officer John Squires. “We are excited to add GMC to our rapidly growing list of Colleges and Universities. We look forward to teaming with students, faculty, and administrators to lower the cost of course materials, enhance textbook adoption efficiencies, and ultimately, to achieve our mutual goal of improving learning outcomes for students.”
