California's most affordable online Christian university opens digital bookstore to provide students affordable course materials
Solidifying Los Angeles Pacific University’s commitment to affordability, accessibility, and student success, its 3,000+ students will have access to low-cost textbooks and course material options through a new partnership with Akademos, an online course materials platform.
LAPU provides a high-quality, faith-integrated online education that removes the barriers to affordability and accessibility. Keeping to their mission, the University sought a bookstore solution that could fully support their commitment to academic affordability. In Akademos, LAPU found a partner that provides students with a wide selection of course material format options including new, used, eBook, and rental at significant savings.
“While our heritage from the Azusa Pacific University System dates back over 100 years, our approach to online education through LAPU is cutting edge, and we’re excited to partner with Akademos to ensure that our students have convenient and affordable access to the textbooks and course materials they need to ensure success,” stated LAPU President John C. Reynolds, Ph.D.
Starting April 1, LAPU students can access materials through the university-branded course materials website that conveniently integrates student courses, associated course materials, and multiple purchasing options with a single sign-on. The integration with university technology systems will make the new bookstore a seamless extension of the LAPU student experience, no matter their location.
“We are excited to partner with Los Angeles Pacific University to provide an online course materials platform that will support their mission and to foster affordability, accessibility, and student success,” said Raj Kaji, CEO, Akademos. “This move demonstrates the commitment LAPU has made to be a mission-driven community and to provide high-quality educational opportunities to its students.”
