The Southern University System (SUS), April 19, 2016, signed a partnership Memorandum of Understanding with California State University (CSU) and the Multimedia Education Resources for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) organization for the design and deployment of Southern University's Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) Initiative, and to create the Southern University Open Online Library for Education (SUOL4Ed).

The CSU-MERLOT program has been successful in saving students millions of dollars in California during the six years of its AL$ program, and higher education systems in New York, Georgia, Tennessee, and Oklahoma have also partnered with CSU-MERLOT to design and deploy their own customized AL$ programs.

Southern University will leverage CSU-MERLOT's AL$ capabilities to create their own institution-specific showcases and website that they can build up over time.
