SF State is part of the CSU Affordable Learning Solutions initiative started in 2010. SF State's Affordable Instructional Materials program aids faculty in replacing costly textbooks with lower cost alternatives by using high-quality open educational resources (OER), library resources, digital or customized textbooks, and/or faculty-authored materials. Every dollar counts for many students. If students cannot afford the assigned class materials, they may try to learn without them.
