BOSTON, July 26, 2018 — Today’s Learner: Student Views 2018, a newly released survey conducted by Morning Consult on behalf of Cengage, identifies buying course materials as the top source of financial stress after tuition for college students. The largest US-based education and technology company serving the higher education market, Cengage provides course materials including textbooks, ebooks, homework and study guides to 11 million students.

The survey of 1,651 current and former college students also shows that students routinely sacrifice basic needs, such as food and spending time with their family, to afford their course materials.  For more key findings, view the full infographic:
