Start Here

Are you a returning student?

If you first took CS101 in Fall 2017 or earlier, you will need to purchase a new code. See below for options on how you can obtain an access code.

If you first took CS101 in Spring 2018 or Summer 2018, follow our I'm a Returning Student instructions.

Obtaining a new access code

If you're a first-time CS101 student or your previous access code expired, you'll need to buy a new MyLab IT access code.  You can do this in one of two ways.

Buy direct from Pearson

If you don't want a print textbook and prefer to purchase online, you can buy MyLab IT and eText access directly from Pearson. This process occurs entirely online so you can begin using MyLab ITimmediately. To use this option, follow our I Want to Buy an Access Code from Pearson instructions.

Buy at the bookstore / I already have an access code

You can also buy the print bundle (which includes a MyLab IT/eText access card and print copies of the books) or the electronic bundle (just MyLab IT and eText access, no print books) from the Barnes & Noble Campus Bookstores, Book Exchange, or BookHolders.  The access card includes a MyLab IT activation code to use with our I Have an Access Code instructions.

Use 14-day free temporary access option

MyLab IT includes free 14-day access you can use to get started if you are not able to purchase the license yet. Follow the I Have an Access Code instructions for this option. You will not be able to use the eText with free temporary access.

When you are ready to purchase MyLab IT, follow this Pearson support document to upgrade your access.

Course IDs

You will need the correct Course ID for your section to register. It's important that you follow the registration instructions above to make sure you can receive proper credit for your work.
