Inclusive & Equitable Access
What are access programs?
Access programs are offered campus-wide, sometimes called Equitable Access, or on a course-by-course basis, a model known as Inclusive Access. Here’s how they work: All required course materials are provided to students on or before the first day of class. In most cases, materials are provided digitally inside the campus learning management system (LMS), offering students maximum convenience.
In addition to convenience, these programs improve course material affordability. Students pay for the course materials via a course fee applied after the add drop period, and opting out of the program is easy. The core mission of both programs is to ensure all students have the necessary resources to succeed in higher education from day one.
Research shows that Inclusive and Equitable Access programs improve student outcomes and result in millions of combined savings, compared to the cost of new textbooks.
