First Day Access (FDA) is a course material delivery model where faculty adopt an eBook or Courseware, and the digital content is sent automatically to the student on or before the first day of class. The cost of the material is applied directly to students' regular university bills as a separate line item charge, along with tuition and fees. The materials are shown in the bookstore but the student is not billed through the bookstore. If the student already has a copy, they can elect to opt-out of using the online FDA course material by the deadline.


Before opting out of FDA course material, it is recommended that you confirm with your instructor that your previous purchase meets the requirements of the course and you have what you need to complete the class.
