Inclusive Access Program


• The Inclusive Access Program is an innovative way to tap into your course materials. Access is typically provided 3 days before the start of class when you log into your d2l. In turn, the cost to the student is drastically reduced for the interactive digital course materials & textbooks. In addition, we have enhanced our textbook model to instantaneously provide access to the course materials while also improving affordability.

• The goal of this program is to improve education success from day one, while reducing type cost of course materials for students by up to 80%.

How It Works:

• An email will be sent to students prior to the first day of classes informing the students that they are enrolled in a course that is part of the Inclusive Access Program. The information in the email will include course information, the cost of the course content, and the opt-out date. Please note that not all courses and sections of a course are a part of the program. To see the complete list of courses that are part of the program, please view the Inclusive Acess List.

• Students will access the required course material through D2L. Instructors will inform students the proper way to access the content in their specific course.

• By default students are opted into the content. If the student decides at the time that they do not want their required course; material to be delivered in this program, at the low cost offered, they have the option to "OPT-OUT". Please visit this page if you no longer have the information from the email to find the opt out date. If you choose to opt-out, you will be responsible for obtaining the appropriate course materials and/or textbooks. The bookstore may not have a printed copy of your Inclusive Access Material

Why It Works:

• Access to the material is typically available 3 days prior to the start of classes, possibly earlier. It is available as soon as the instructor makes the course available to students in D2L.

• There is no waiting to purchase access codes, or for delivery of a book purchased online or out of stock at the bookstore.

• Slippery Rock University, The SGA Bookstore, faculty, and publishers have agreed on the lowest possible price to provide the required course content electronically through D2L.
