How can this program save me money?
Northeast has a wide variety of low cost to no cost textbooks for you to choose from.  Along with that digital books save students money.  A typical freshman who generally would spend $1100 per semester for textbooks, can see their cost reduce down to as low as $55.

I do not have internet at home can I still access my books?
Yes, Vitalsource ebooks and OER textbooks are downloaded directly to your iPad so they can be accessed offline.  Books from the publisher may require internet access.

When do I pay?
Your iPad payment will be due the same time your tuition and fees are due.
