If you need to view your eTextbooks offline using the apps for Windows or Mac or the mobile apps (iOS, Android, Kindle Fire), you will need to do the following:

  1. Go to and choose the correct application for your device.
  2. After you download the application, open it.
  3. At the sign in prompt, sign in with your Rasmussen smail address and password.
  4. After you sign in, you will be prompted to begin downloading your books. Choose to download now, and double-click the title you want to download and accept the terms in the dialogue box. Your download should begin.

NOTE: Do NOT create a new account! If you create a new account, you will not be able to view your eTextbooks! Your existing migrated account contains your eTextbooks and you will need to use that login to access them on the downloadable platforms. If you do end up creating a new account, you will need to contact the Personal Support Center to have your accounts merged together.
