Pearson Education

Pearson Education is committed to student affordability, access and achievement. Today, students pay an average of $110 per traditional print textbook. In a “digital first” marketplace, Pearson projects average prices will range from $29 (for a typical e-textbook) to $69 (if packaged with courseware or other learning tools). In addition, Pearson will continue to expand access to its traditional textbook rental program, which costs students an average of $60 per title. Overall, students can expect to pay between 30-60% less for textbooks by leveraging some or all of these affordable options. Thank you again for the opportunity to support your Association. We look forward to continuing our partnership in the future. We also always welcome the opportunity to collaborate with individual institutions to deliver a wide range of education solutions that enhance access, affordability, and quality.
