Spring 2023 Student Book and Tools process:

Once the student is authorized then the student will go to the Registrar’s office to get a copy of their schedule to take to the Bookstore to receive their books or tools they may need.

Students at other campuses will reach out to Becky Mercurio or Patrick Glynn in the admissions offices to receive their required materials.

All General Education classes will have digital books. See Bookstore for any questions.

Digital Textbook Information

Step 1:

Student will log into Cengage using the newly added Learning Tool on Inside Ranken.


Step 2:

Students will be directed to unique-to-Ranken Cengage sign in webpage.  They will either sign in if they have a username from a previous semester here, or they will create a new account under “New Users”.  **Note- This means they do not need to create a new account if they are returning students.



Step 3:

Once logged in, they will be greeted with a “My Home” page.  Note that there are two search boxes in the upper-right hand corner: “Enter Access Code/Course Key” or “Search the Catalog”.



Step 4:

If the instructor uses MindTap or WebAssign and has a Course Key, the student will locate the Course Key on the instructor’s Main Page and enter it in the “Enter Access Code/Course Key” search box.


If the instructor does not use MindTap or WebAssign the student will locate the ISBN number of the etextbook being used on the instructor’s Main Page and enter it in the “Search the catalog” search box.  **Note that the student can leave the hyphens in the ISBN number. A student can also just add the title of textbook as well if the ISBN is giving them trouble.



Step 5:

Once the Course Key or ISBN number is entered, the ebook and appropriate learning systems will be added to the student’s My Home page on Cengage.


You can now enjoy their Cengage Learning materials.
