Connect Temporary Access is Ending: Next Steps

Important Information About Temporary Access

  • Temporary Access begins once a user registers for a course in Connect. It is only available for the first 14-days of the course. After the time period for Temporary Access has expired, this option will be grayed out within Connect and you will not be able to register using the Temporary Access option​​.
  • Two different Connect email accounts cannot be merged into one account. If you are having difficulty with multiple Connect accounts, please reach out to our Customer Experience Group.

What if I Purchase Connect After the 2 Week Trial?

  • The purchasing process will be the same. However, any work that was done while using Temporary Access will be saved when you are fully registered for your Connect course, as long as the same email address is used. To ensure you do not lose assignments in progress, we recommend purchasing access on the final day of your Temporary Access or before it expires.

How to Purchase Materials with Temporary Access

To register for a course, your instructor provided a link to Connect. This could be listed on the course homepage of the institutions Learning Management System (Blackboard, Canva, D2L, Moodle, etc.), or they may have emailed you with the link. If you are unable to find the link, please reach out to your instructor and they will be able to provide it.

Following this provided link, you will be redirected to a page similar to this:



In the center is the option to buy the textbook your instructor is using. Click the “Buy It” link, and you will be redirected to enter credit card information to complete your purchase.

Will I Need an Access Code?

No, the only time an access code will be required is if a purchase of physical materials was made. If you have purchased materials while using Temporary Access, the system will know that you have already registered for the course. You will be able to seamlessly continue to work on assignments and stay on track for your course.
