Salisbury University Bookstore Inclusive Access FAQ’S
What is Inclusive Access?
Inclusive Access is a collaboration between your professor, the SU Bookstore, and the publisher of your materials. This was created to provide you with the least expensive way to purchase your materials, combined with the convenience of charging the materials to your SU Gullnet account. The course materials your professor has chosen are delivered directly to you in a digital format through MyClasses. There is no need to purchase a textbook. However, if you wish to supplement your digital material with a print version, there are in many cases a discounted loose-leaf available for purchase through the SU Bookstore.
How do I pay for my materials?

If you added the course late you will be charged by the Bursar’s office which will reflect on your SU Gullnet account. Please note that faculty can at any time decide to participate in the program.
