Multi-Term Access

Multi-term access, sometimes called Lifetime of Edition, is access for more than one term to courses using the same textbook edition.

Multi-term access allows your students to take a multi-term course like Calculus or to retake a course if needed with no additional charge. When available, multi-term access is usually the most cost-effective way to purchase access for a multi-term course.

  • Multi-term access availability is at the publisher's discretion, and might be a required or optional purchase with WebAssign access.
  • WebAssign access — including multi-term access — cannot be transferred; it is usable only for a single student account.
  • Your students lose multi-term access if you change the textbook edition. When changing textbook editions, consider phasing in the change over several terms so students in a multi-term course do not lose access.
