Program materials are provided in digital format* within Canvas and become available for students to access by the start of classes. Learn all you need to know here!

What are the benefits of this program?

Affordability & Value! Digital textbooks provide content that is high quality, convenient and better value. A low flat rate reduces overall course materials costs when compared to traditional market prices. The CAMP fee is included in the cost of attendance.


💡 After weighing the benefits of the program, if you decide the program isn’t right for you, you may opt out within Canvas when the materials become available through the opt out deadline (September 9, 2022).

Convenience! All digital content is accessible through a single access point in Canvas and any print textbooks provided as part of the program will be set aside for easy pickup at The Cornell Store. The program fee aligns with pre-semester bursar billing schedule, reducing the list of things to do when arriving on campus.


💡 The fee will appear as CAMP Program Fee on you bursar account.

Supports Academic Success! Students are free to explore academic interests without having to weigh the often-prohibitive costs of purchasing expensive individual print course materials.

Supports Sustainability! This program will eliminate thousands of printed copies of textbooks each semester.
