Welcome to the Inclusive Access Program!


Dear Student:

Welcome to the Inclusive Access program,  Slippery Rock University’s digital course material delivery service.  This program provides you access to online material at the guaranteed lowest price,  where you would otherwise be required to purchase in the bookstore or the publisher’s website.

When D2L opens for the start of your current term,  you will have immediate access to your online course material through SRU’s drop/add period.  Your student account has already been charged the discounted rate for your course material.  Please go onto the bookstore website or view your student account to determine the cost of your material.  Please go to Red Shelf for instructions on how to access digital content through D2L.

If you decide that you do not want to purchase the materials through the Inclusive Access program, you can respond to this email with your course/section information, and we will opt you out.  You will also have the ability to opt out through the D2L site once you have access to your course material.  If you decide to opt out,  you will receive a refund on your SRU student account.  However,  you must opt out before the end of the drop/add period.  For detailed instructions on how to opt out on D2L,  please view the Tutorial. If you have any questions or need further assistance,  please contact Kevin Taylor. Please note that if you do opt out of the Inclusive Access program,  you will no longer have access to the materials needed to complete the class and the bookstore will not have the materials available in store.

More information about accessing Inclusive Access through D2L is available directly at Red Shelf and if you should need further support,  you can find that here.

Thank You,

- The SGA Bookstore Inclusive Access Team
