Inclusive Access

  • Inclusive Access is a course materials fulfillment model designed to improve convenience and affordability. Students automatically gain access to their digital course materials by the first day of class simply by being enrolled in that class. This can include eBooks, courseware, online homework and labs, and more. The fee is billed as a separate materials fee.
  • To opt-out of inclusive access materials visit the online bookstore by logging in with your UAA credentials at the online bookstore. Once you are logged in, click on the Opt-Out icon on the right side of the page. You will then be shown a list of the inclusive access materials for courses for which you have registered. If you would not like these materials, click on "decline materials."
  • Inclusive Access (IA) materials are automatically charged to the student's account. If you drop the class or opt out of using IA materials before the Add/Drop date, a refund will be automatically posted to the student account.
