Inclusive Access - Textbook Options

The University of Toledo continually strives to reduce the cost of your education while also ensuring you have the materials you need to succeed.  As part of that effort, the University has teamed up with the bookstore and publishers to provide you with a convenient and affordable option for textbooks, called "Inclusive Access."

UToledo's Inclusive Access program provides you with a digital course content option that can replace traditional print textbooks, offering many advantages to enhance your learning while also reducing fees.

Please review the Frequently Asked Questions below to learn more about the University's Inclusive Access program.

FAQs

What is Inclusive Access (IA)?
Inclusive Access also known as Digital Course Content Access (DCCA), provides course material in a digital version of a printed textbook.  This digital content may include additional educational resources such as workbooks, problem sets, tutorials, videos, simulations and interactive software to help you learn. 

What are the benefits of Inclusive Access?
Digital textbooks have many features that enable you to interact with course content beyond what a printed textbook can.  Depending on the specific course materials used, special features may include highlighting, annotation, search functions and multimedia links that support your learning experience.  These benefits can enhance your understanding of course materials.

Additionally, the University offers Inclusive Access because it also can significantly lower traditional textbook fees.

How do I receive my required course materials through Inclusive Access?
Once the course is opened by your instructor (usually on the first day of class), you may access your digital course materials through Blackboard.  First-time users will need to create an account with the publisher providing the course material. Please ensure your pop-up blocker is disabled within your browser.

How much does Inclusive Access cost?
Prices are negotiated and vary depending on the course materials chosen by your instructor.  However, they always cost less than competitive rates for printed textbooks.  To view the most current list of Inclusive Access Fee, select your student level (e.g., undergraduate or graduate) on the Tuition and Fee website.

How do I pay for Inclusive Access?
The cost of Inclusive Access course materials is automatically added to your tuition and fees, listed on your student account as "Inclusive Access fee."  The fee is only applicable to courses that are part of UToledo's Inclusive Access program. 

Can I opt out of Inclusive Access if I prefer printed textbooks?
Yes, as long as you make that selection by the deadline.  If you do not wish to purchase the required course materials through the Inclusive Access program, you have until the end of the 100% tuition refund period to opt out.

If you choose to opt out by this deadline, you must still complete all coursework assigned by your instructor.  Once you opt out, access to the online content will be turned off and the cost will not appear on your student account.

How do I opt out?
To opt out of Inclusive Access materials, you must fill out the online form by the 100% tuition refund deadline.  The cost will then be credited to your student account.

Do I need to opt out if I drop a course?
No, as long as you meet the deadline for dropping a class.  Students who drop a course before the end of the add/drop period will automatically be opted out of Inclusive Access.  However, fee credits will not be issued after the add/drop deadline.

Will I be charged if I did not opt out, yet never registered my access nor used the online platform?
Yes. All students enrolled in a course having an Inclusive Access fee are automatically considered part of the program and will be assessed the fee unless they opt out by the 100% tuition refund deadline.

Can I receive a credit if I forgot to opt out and missed the deadline?
No.  Once the cost of the required course materials are applied to your student account and the 100% tuition refund deadline has passed, you are unable to receive a fee credit.

Can I opt in if I opt out by mistake and now need access to digital content?
Yes, but only if it is before the 100% tuition refund deadline. To opt back in, complete the online form Inclusive Access Opt Out, Opt In.
