AL$ Impact for Students in the CSU

These figures reflect the AL$ campus activities indicating their successful participation in reducing their students’ course materials costs

Since the inception of the AL$ program in 2010, the estimated student savings on textbooks throughout the CSU has been over $230,000,000.  We request savings reports from the campus bookstores, AL$ campus coordinators, and in the past from several of our vendor partners.  We rely on the voluntary support from each campus and this past year the majority of the campuses participated in AL$.
