Follett Access™ Program

Follett Access Program

In an effort to address the rising cost of course materials, College of The Albemarle’s (COA) Mathematics and Engineering department is excited to offer Follett Access (formerly known as IncludED) paired with Pearson’s Inclusive Access Program. Follett Access is an initiative that delivers required course materials digitally to students. For MAT courses, this includes the MyMathLab (MML) access code and e-book. MML access codes are required to complete assignments in all MAT courses. For EGR 150, this includes the MyLab access code and ebook which is required.


  • As a COA student, you’ll have required course materials on the first day of class
  • Digital course materials are easy to access, manage and use
  • You’ll be able to get materials traditionally purchased through the bookstore at a significant savings, allowing students/districts to save money, take more classes, and/or defer fewer classes due to course material access and costs

1 MAT 110, MAT 143, MAT 152, MAT 263, MAT 280 and MAT 285 access codes are valid for one semester (18 weeks). If you withdraw after the census date or repeat the course, you’ll be required to purchase a new code.
2 MAT 152 access code also includes access to Statcrunch, a statistical analysis computer program used in this class. The student workbook will be available in a digital format for you to print or you can purchase a printed copy from the campus bookstore.
3 MAT 171-172 and MAT 271-273 access codes are valid for 24 months on sequential courses. You’ll be charged once for a access code and can use the same code for the entire MAT 171-172 sequence, if completed within 24 months. Similarly, you’ll only need to purchase one access code for the MAT 271-273 sequence. No longer available after Summer 2024.
* All MAT course and EGR 150 access codes are valid for one semester (18 weeks). If you re-enroll in a course you will be required to purchase a new access code.

Students who purchased a 2 year sequential code for MAT 171/172 OR MAT 271/272/273 before Fall 2024 will be grandfathered in to complete their sequence within the 2 year period at no additional cost. For instance, MyMathLab sequential access codes purchased for MAT 171 in Summer 2024 will expire at the end of the Spring 2026 term and will be good for MAT 171 and MAT 172.

How the Follett Access Program Works

A Follett Access course materials fee, which covers the cost of the MML access code including an e-book, will be charged to your student account. It’ll be noted as Course Material Fee (CMFEE) on the student account. You’re responsible for this fee just as you’re responsible for obtaining textbooks and other required materials for other courses. The only difference is this Follett Access course materials fee is paid to the business office rather than the bookstore.

When you log into MyCourses on the first day of classes, you’ll see a link to MyLab in your math/engineering course. Once you click on the link and accept the terms, you’ll be ready to go. COA uses single sign on and students must access MyLab through MyCourses.

Effective Fall 2024:

If you drop a course after the first day of classes but prior to the census date, 75% of the Follettt Access course materials fee will be refunded. It is highly recommended that students who wish to make a schedule change do so before the first day of classes to ensure they receive a 100% refund of the course material fee.

A limited number of loose leaf paper textbook copies will be available for purchase in the bookstore (optional for those who want a physical textbook in addition to the e-book found in ML). Purchase of ML access code is still required.

You can opt out of the Follett Access program and look to other third-party vendors for ML access codes if you wish. However, once you opt out, you cannot opt back in. Pearson (ML) is not responsible and will not replace codes that are not purchased through COA. If you want to opt out of the Follett Access program, you’ll need to complete the Opt Out Form in order to have the fee removed from your student account.

The Follett Access fee must be paid on the day you register with your tuition and fees. Learn how to make a payment for tuition and fees.
