The FAQ's on Access Codes
What in the world is an access code?
Access codes (also referred to as textbook access codes, student access codes or a student access kit) is a series of letters and numbers that allows you access to your courses online content and/or additional study material. Access codes (which can only be used once) have been included with new textbooks as a way for publisher's to "add value" for those who purchase their textbooks new rather than used. Popular websites such as WebCT and MyMathLab also use student access kits for exclusive access to some of their online content.
Does my access code include a copy of an e-book?
The quick and easy way to answer this is, no. Some textbook access codes may include a copy of an e-book, but generally the information and material found online by use of a student access kit is only additional material for the course.
Do I really need an access code?
The use of your textbook's access code is usually up to your professor. In some cases, a professor may only recommend that you use the textbook code found in your student access kit to obtain additional reference and/or study material on your course. In other cases, a professor may require you to use your textbook access code because a portion of your grade will come be coming from the online material.
How long will I be able to view the online content provided by my access code?
While textbook access code subscriptions may vary, a student access code should grant you access to online content for the duration of your course, generally lasting between 6-12 months.
If I buy a used book and it doesn't come with an access code, can I purchase my access code separately?
Of course! Because many professors do not require the use of access codes in their class, a slew of savvy students are out there selling their unused textbook access codes on the Internet.
