Inclusive Access saves students money on textbooks

ANNOUNCEMENTS

As part of its ongoing effort to support students and faculty in meaningful ways, the University Campus Store and Campus Store Health now offer an Inclusive Access program that helps students save 70-80 percent on course materials—a welcome alternative to the high cost of textbooks with the added convenience of accessing materials online the first day of class.

Inclusive Access puts your textbooks online for ease of access, making them available anytime, anywhere, especially on the first day of class. So no more out-of-stock textbooks or waiting for the book to arrive. Any course is eligible for Inclusive Access and the fee is paid by the student along with the course tuition, eliminating the need to search for and purchase textbooks independently.

In Fall 2017 Semester, over 7,400 students utilized Inclusive Access and each saved an average of 60 percent on their course materials, totaling more than $620,000 saved for one semester. Students can conveniently view their textbooks online, track their progress from assignment to assignment and communicate with other students in their class. Professors can also communicate with students, as well as provide updates and announcements online.

Join the 40 courses already using Inclusive Access by contacting Shane Girton, senior associate director of the Campus Store, at sgirton@campusstore.utah.edu or 801-581-8296. He’ll be happy to work with you on developing a cost-saving textbook program for your course as well.

Hit the ground running on day one next semester while helping your students save money through Inclusive Access.
