What is Inclusive Access?


The UC Merced Campus Store has partnered with top academic publishers to bring forth interactive digital course material at reduced costs in comparison to printed textbooks. Students can save up to 70% off the price of a new print textbook.


So… Like an e-book?


Inclusive Access is so much more than just an e-book! Students and Instructors alike can benefit from all that Inclusive Access course content has to offer.


For Students: Students can greatly benefit from all that Inclusive Access has to offer! Having access to interactive material – unlike printed text or even e-books – can drastically change the student’s experience in learning. We want students to have everything they need to succeed, on the first day of class. The Inclusive Access model gives students immediate digital access to all of their course materials for up to 70% off the price of a new print textbook. Additionally, specific program features such as interactive online assignments, multimedia presentations, virtual tutoring, and dynamic study and self-assessment tools give students everything they need to study well and succeed!


For Instructors: Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, Inclusive Access allows professors to facilitate learning beyond the classroom. With interactive online assignments, multimedia presentations, virtual tutoring, and dynamic study and self-assessment tools, professors can now have the most advanced educational tools available at their disposal. Faculty feedback will be taken into high consideration when deciding to implement this program into future courses.



We aim to start small and add courses as faculty interest and student support grows. In order to expand Inclusive Access, we look to actual student feedback and faculty recommendations, as well as end-of-semester student grade results in comparison to the average grades earned in the equivalent courses from previous semesters.
