Lexington, KY (PRUnderground) – Ivy Tech Community College, Indiana’s largest postsecondary institution and the nation’s largest singly accredited community college, has selected eCampus.com, a leader in online bookstores and collegiate retail solutions, to support the institution’s Ivy+ Textbooks equitable access program and campus retail operations.

Ivy+ Textbooks is Ivy Tech’s award-winning program that provides students 100% of required course materials on or before the first day of classes for one low and predictable per-credit-hour cost. Through this program, eCampus.com will ensure Ivy Tech’s students across 19 campuses are prepared for success on day one. The new partnership will launch in Fall 2024.

Ivy Tech students will seamlessly enjoy the benefits of Ivy+ Textbooks as soon as they register for courses. Through advanced technology platforms, eCampus.com will create customized course material orders for students according to their class schedules, thus removing the stress of finding affordable materials and wondering how much those course materials will cost each term. Equally beneficial is the seamless delivery model through IvyLearn, the College’s online learning platform, where digital content can be automatically accessed inside the student’s learning management system account.

Beyond student benefits, faculty will enjoy a simplified process for selecting and adopting course materials through eCampus.com’s robust online adoption platform. As an industry leader in advanced technology systems, eCampus.com provides faculty the ability to research, evaluate cost, and enjoy the academic freedom to select best-fit content, including Open Educational Resources (OER), in one intuitive portal. Faculty and staff are supported with the highest-rated service and support team in the industry.

eCampus.com will also extend its expertise in retail management to operate physical campus stores and creative retail locations across Indiana. This vital component to the overall partnership will provide the Ivy Tech community with a reimagined retail experience focused on trending assortments that accommodate every budget. Seasonal course material service centers will provide customized and personal support.

“Our partnership with Ivy Tech Community College represents a significant commitment in making higher education more accessible and affordable”, said Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com. “Through the Ivy+ Textbooks program, we’re not just supplying course materials; we’re actively participating in the academic success of each student.
