McGraw Hill Inclusive Access

Together, we can improve
student success.

Increase student access and affordability of course materials with Inclusive Access.

What is Inclusive Access?

Inclusive Access is a course material affordability program, designed by institutions and guided by the Department of Education to deliver digital learning resources to students, at a significantly reduced cost, on or before the first day of class. It offers students maximum choice in selecting the learning resources that are right for them, at the lowest market price, including the choice to “opt out.”

Why are institutions choosing Inclusive Access?

Millions saved

Inclusive Access has saved students on average more than $150 million per year over the past 3 years.

Students choose what’s best for them

Students are free to choose whatever purchase option they feel works best for them.

Improved Student Outcomes

Research shows that students having access to their required course materials on Day 1 of class can significantly impact their success and course completion rates. A recent *study found even greater effects on minority populations including a 21.06% increase in course completion rates for students who identify as Black.

Why are students choosing Inclusive Access?

On average, Inclusive Access programs have a 95% student participation rate because: 

  • It's the most convenient way for students to purchase their required course materials and gain single sign-on access via the institution’s learning management system.
  • It offers the lowest price on digital course materials.
  • It ensures that all students have consistent access throughout their course to their required course materials — beginning on the first day of the term.
