Accessibility/AffordabilityA cornerstone of Constellation is student affordability. Constellation materials replace third-party textbooks, which have typically cost students enrolled in online programs $200 per course. With Constellation, the cost is expected to be cut to approximately $75. Initially, Constellation will be provided in some University of the Rockies courses and, ultimately, is expected to include additional courses in the future.
Constellation officially launched on August 27 and is currently available to students enrolled in specific University of the Rockies coursework.
