IncludED course material information

What is includED?

In the includED program, students access all of their course materials within the Blackboard environment. The eBook and digital resources that are typically accessed with an “access code” are now deeply integrated into the course through Blackboard. This benefits students by offering the convenience of paying for course materials with tuition and fees, by eliminating the wait time in bookstore lines, and most importantly, it increases student success by ensuring that all students are prepared the first day of class. Some third parties do not pay IncludED course material fees, including GIBill® benefits, and Virginia Prepaid 529 plans, and waivers. In these cases, students are responsible for paying the IncludED fee.
