4 Ways to Get Free College Textbooks

College can be a shock to the senses for many students. It can also be a shock to the wallet. Students can easily drop $200 on a single textbook – and that’s just one book, for one class.

Arizona State University estimates full-time students will spend $1,000 on books this school year. Ohio State University suggests students budget nearly $1,250 for books and supplies, and the University of Southern California bumps that figure up to $1,500 for full-time undergrads.

Buying used instead of new can help students cut their book bill. Renting in lieu of buying can help students save, too. Budget-savvy students can go a step further by scoring free textbooks.

Finding no-cost options for all of the books on your list may not be possible, but even one or two free books can save students hundreds of dollars. This article contains a  few resources to start your search for free textbooks.
