Did you know... since August 2019, we have saved students $125M nationwide with Cengage Unlimited? Not only has it saved students money, but it's continuing to become a common affordable option among students. In the past fall semester, 4 out of 10 math students signing up for a WebAssign course chose a Cengage Unlimited subscription as their purchase option.
Since we still get questions from faculty about Cengage Unlimited, we don’t want to assume you know everything you need to know. Here are some answers to popular questions that may help you guide your students to making the right decision to purchase what works best for them this spring term and for future semesters!
Before we get started, as always, please know you can reach out to your Cengage Account Executive for help too!

2. How much is Cengage Unlimited?
When a student purchases Cengage Unlimited, they get the option of a 4-month, 1-year, or 2-year subscription. The cost includes access to all Cengage textbooks and platforms, such as WebAssign, when adopted with a Cengage or OER title.
What does this mean for your students’ wallets? Let's take a look at potential savings:
A student could save $447 when taking Calculus, Chemistry, History, and Psychology in the same term with Cengage Unlimited, see image below.

When a student purchases any Cengage Unlimited subscription and registers for a multi-term course or needs to retake a single-term course, each subscription duration option provides full access to WebAssign for all current and future semesters in the course sequence where the same textbook is used.
