College textbook prices are not accommodating student budgets. This is due to high prices, students having multiple classes that require textbooks, and most students making minimum wage at their jobs. The prices for textbooks are extremely high.
College is a business. As such, it is not the colleges problem weather or not the student can afford the books. Going into college it is already expected that textbook prices will be high. In addition to this there are scholarships and financial aid that can help take the student load off of what they need to pay for school.
