Inclusive Access: Impact Student Success with Affordable Digital Course Materials 

Inclusive Access eliminates the need for students to purchase course materials on their own. Working with college bookstores, this program provides students with e-copies of the textbooks required by their instructors via platforms such as RedShelf and VitalSource. The cost of these textbooks is included in the students’ tuition pricing and digital course materials are available day one of classes.

What is Inclusive Access?

Inclusive access is a model where digital course materials are included as an additional course charge for a particular course or program. This model is easy and convenient for students to use and provides an affordable option and supports students by ensuring every student has access to the text on or before the first day of class. 

Where students were previously assigned textbooks to find and purchase on their own, using this model, every student receives first day of class access to their required course material with the discounted costs included as part of their tuition. Taylor and Francis has negotiated the lowest possible price for your institution through your bookstore. We also now offer Inclusive Access for 180 day rental.
