Inclusive Access FAQ's

Selected by your professor, 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, and is complimentary through the drop/add date without a “W.” If you don't want to purchase, you must opt-out.

For Faculty

  • Faculty collaborate with their publisher representatives and the UA BookStore to coordinate required course materials and cost savings.
  • Faculty receive instructions to set up their course materials within the LMS.
  • The UA BookStore communicates the program to enrolled students via student book list in UAccess Student Center.
  • Once the content is published by the faculty, students log into the LMS and access their materials on Day 1 of class.

Interested? Please email the UA BookStore at inclusiveaccess@arizona.edu

For Students

  • When a faculty member chooses Inclusive Access for any course, details are posted in the student booklist.
  • Students receive access to the required digital course material through D2L.arizona.edu on the first day of class.
  • An opt-out option is available for students who don't want to purchase the required content.
  • For those students who don't opt-out, the cost of the content is applied to the student's university Bursar account approximately five business days after the opt-out deadline

Your required digital course materials are delivered through D2L. Access begins the first day of class. Go to d2l.arizona.edu. Login with your NetID, and select to your course home page.

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 email your instructor.

Prices are negotiated and vary depending upon the course materials chosen 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. See your booklist for the price of your specific Inclusive Access titles or refer to the introductory email you receive on the first day of class.

If you do not wish to purchase the required course materials through the Inclusive Access program, you have until the add/drop day without a W to opt-out. If you opt-out by the deadline, access to the online content will be turned off and the cost will not appear on your Bursar account. Be sure not to opt-out if you need access to the interactive module (such as MindTap, ALEX, Webassign, Tophat, Packback etc.) to submit homework or take quizzes.
