What is AL$

Affordable Learning Solutions

CSU’s Affordable Learning Solutions 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 course materials they need to succeed and benefit from their CSU learning experience.

Now, CSUSB faculty and students have greater access to quality free and low-cost learning materials through a variety of AL$ programs and partnerships such the Bookstore, Library, Information Technology Services (ITS) and Teacher Resource Center (TRC).

Cal State San Bernardino’s AL$ program helps lower students’ college education expenses: Since 2013, the AL$ program has saved CSUSB students more than $4.2 million on course materials.
