Cost Savings for Students

Lyryx is committed to making course materials more accessible and affordable to students. By supporting the use of free, open textbooks that can be paired with high-quality, affordable online homework products, Lyryx helps to reduce the overall cost of higher education and increase accessibility to resources from the first day of classes.

'Free Lab' Option

In our ongoing effort to facilitate access to educational material for students, Lyryx provides a Free Lab option for all online homework. With Free Lab, students are able to complete their online homework at no charge when they do so from assigned computer labs on corpus. Students can thus have access to all their course material at no cost!

Free Lab involves no cost to students or their institution, and there is no physical setup of any kind required. Further, if a student later decides they want to complete their homework from home, work or anywhere else, they simply log into their Lyryx account from one of those places and pay for the convenience of unlimited access.
