In an effort to address the rising cost of course materials, College of The Albemarle’s (COA) math department is excited to pilot Follett Access (formerly known as IncludED) paired with Pearson’s Inclusive Access Program beginning fall 2019. 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.
- 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 and MAT 152 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.
How it 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.
If you drop a course prior to the census date, the Follettt Access course materials fee will be refunded.
Only courses with a MAT prefix are part of this program. DMA courses aren’t part of this pilot.
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 MML). Purchase of MML access code is still required.
You can opt out of the Follett Access program and look to other third-party vendors for MML access codes if you wish. However, once you opt out, you cannot opt back in. 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.
If you purchased a MyLabsPlus/MML access code during the 2018 – 2019 academic year and are repeating that course again at COA, you can opt out of the Follett Access program and receive a replacement code free of charge upon verification for the 2019 – 2020 academic year. Replacement codes will only be issued during the 2019 – 2020 academic year. If you need to repeat a course, please do so this academic year.
If you’re taking the second part of a sequential course such as MAT 171-172 and purchased a MyLabsPlus/MML access code during the 2018 – 2019 academic year, you’ll automatically be opted out of the Follett Access program and receive a replacement code upon verification free of charge.
Replacement codes will only be issued during the 2019 – 2020 academic year. If you’ve completed MAT 171 at COA or need to complete MAT 172, please do so during the 2019 – 2020 academic year.
For those who have preregistered for fall 2019 semester, the Follett Access fee must be paid by July 18 along with your tuition and fees in order to avoid being dropped for non-payment. After July 18, this fee is due on the day you register with your tuition and fees. Learn how to make a payment for tuition and fees.
