Requesting Instructor only access to the resources on openstax.org

To access the OpenStax instructor resources, you need a free instructor account on openstax.org. Our Support Team manually verifies all instructor account requests to ensure the security of the instructor-only resources. 

If you don't have an openstax.org account:

1. Go to openstax.org and click "Login" at the top right corner.

2. Click the "Sign up here" link next to "Need an account?"
