Answer

Access codes (also referred to as textbook access codes, student access codes or a student access kit) is a series of letters and numbers that allows you access to your courses online content and/or additional study material. Access codes (which can only be used once) have been included with new textbooks as a way for publisher's to "add value" for those who purchase their textbooks new rather than used. Popular websites also use student access kits for exclusive access to some of their online content.

Most codes are valid for one term. If a code is valid for a longer period of time, the duration is stated on the access code card.
