What is Inclusive Access?
Inclusive Access is a new course material model in which the University of Iowa, the Iowa Hawk Shop, and Information Technology Services are teaming up to provide lower priced course materials to students. Working with publishers, textbooks are converted into interactive and adaptive digital content, which is accessible immediately upon starting a class. Students have free access for the first three weeks of class and then they are charged for their content subscription directly to their student account (UBill). Students retain the right to participate or not (Opt Out).How much does it cost?Prices will vary by course and on the content selected by your instructor. The Hawk Shop and Information Technology Services have negotiated special pricing with publishers. Most Inclusive Access titles come with an average cost savings of over 50% OFF the new print book. With all, or most, of the students in a class buying into the content, it lowers the cost for everyone.How do I get it?Just log on to your ICON class. Your Instructor will provide further instructions.How do I pay for it?It's free for the first three weeks of class. After that time, all students who have not opted out of the program, or have not dropped their course, will be automatically charged a one-time content subscription directly to their student account (UBILL). An email confirmation with then be sent to the student's email account. Students will not be billed for it until after the normal refund deadline.What if I don't want to participate?All students have a right not to participate, which is referred to as opting out. If a student chooses not to participate, access to the digital course material will be removed after the third week of class, and the student will be responsible to find the required course material by other means.I dropped the couse; do I still need to opt out?No, students who drop before the third week of class will be automatically "opted out" and will not be billed.I opted out, but I think I need to opt back inThis is possible if done prior to the 3-week trial period, but may vary by class.
