Affordable Learning Solutions

ALS Affordable Learning Solutions

CSU's  Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) Opens in new window  is a program that enables faculty to choose and provide more affordable, quality educational content for their students. By reducing CSU student course material expenses, more students acquire the educational resources they need to succeed at CSU. With AL$, faculty and students have greater access to quality free and lower cost learning materials through various programs and partnerships.

Three basic principles govern AL$:

  1. Choice: Enables the discovery of course content, including commercial publisher content, library resources, and a wide array of open educational resources (OER).
  2. Affordability : Technology and partnerships that reduce the cost of learning materials for students and the CSU.
  3. Accessibility: Every student is entitled to high-quality education with access to all learning materials.
