Follett has announced includED, a new program that will provide students with all required course materials as part of tuition or fees. The model has been gaining momentum as the cost of higher education continues to rise and students struggle to pay for their materials, or even go without.

includED is set to accelerate the course materials with tuition or fee model in a new way because it doesn’t limit the number of students who can participate, gives schools the freedom to select digital and print content from any publisher and allows students to use financial aid. The company has successfully piloted includED with six schools at all levels of education and is now working closely with more than 80 schools to explore the program.
