Inclusive Access

The Inclusive Access program is digital access to your required course materials through D2L at a reduced price. Access to your required textbook starts the first day of classes. If you don't want to purchase, you must opt-out to receive a refund.

Inclusive Access FAQ's

Students receive access to the required digital course material through D2L on the first day of class and the cost of the materials is applied to student Bursar Accounts as “BookStore InclusiveAccess Dig.”

Students who prefer not to purchase the required content can opt out, and refunds will be issued within 7-10 business days.

Your required digital course materials are delivered through D2L. Access begins the first day of class.

  • Go to d2l.arizona.edu.
  • Select the “Content” link at the top of the page.
  • Select the “Pay One Price and Inclusive Access Materials” module (this could have been renamed by your instructor so look for another module).
  • Select the “Textbooks and Opt Out” link (this may have been renamed as well).

If you are unable to locate the links to digital content/textbooks, please contact your instructor.

Not seeing your D2L course site? Sites are automatically activated 1 week prior to the course start date. If you don't see a class in D2L, and it starts in less than a week, your instructor may have made it inactive. If you are concerned about access, please contact your instructor.

Prices are negotiated and vary depending upon the course materials selected by the instructor. Most Inclusive Access prices are lower than the cost to access the material directly through the publisher and average a savings upwards of 60% off the price of a new print textbook. Please refer to the introductory email you receive from “University of Arizona BookStores no-reply@verbasoftware.com”.

If you prefer not to buy the required course materials via the Inclusive Access program, you have until the refund deadlines listed below to opt out. Opting out by the deadline will deactivate online content access and refund the cost to your Bursar account. However, please note that opting out means losing access to interactive modules (like MindTap, ALEX, Webassign, Tophat, Packback, etc.) required for homework submission or quizzes.
