How does Follett ACCESS work?
The Follett ACCESS program takes the hassle out of buying course materials because textbooks are available to all traditional and SDAP undergraduate students at no charge. Textbooks will be one of the following: eBook, rental, or purchase. This enables every enrolled undergraduate access to all required materials on day one. Once you have selected your courses, your course list will be sent to the Ursuline College Bookstore. The campus store gets everything ready for you. All you need to do is pick up your required course materials at Ursuline College Bookstore, 1st floor of the Pilla Center, on the dates indicated below. Please note: nursing uniforms are not covered by the Follett ACCESS program.
Will I save money?
Yes! You will not pay out of pocket for your required course materials.
Is this open to UCAP students?
Unfortunately no. This program is only open to students in our traditional, semester undergraduate program and to SDAP students.
How and when do I get my course materials?
Once you have selected your courses, your course list will be sent to the campus store and they will get everything ready for you! You'll get an email when your order is ready for pick-up so please check your Ursuline email regularly! All you need to do is pick up your required textbooks and materials at Ursuline College Bookstore on one of these dates:
If you can’t make the above dates you may come in Aug. 19, 10am-5pm; Aug. 20, 9am-3pm; and Aug. 21, 10am-3pm. If you need books mailed we can do that as well. If you are unable to get to campus ahead of time, the Bookstore will provide books on the first day of class.
What if I add or drop a course?
If you drop a course, return materials to the campus store by August 30. If you add a new course after you have already picked up your materials, go to the campus store one day after enrollment to pick up additional course materials.
What are students saying about Follett ACCESS?
Students at other campuses who have participated in a similar program love the convenience and ease of accessing their course materials…and being ready for classes on day one!
If my professor has recommended course materials, will those be included in the program?
Only materials identified by your professor or campus as “required” are included as part of the program. All “recommended” materials will be available for purchase at the campus store and at bkstr.com/ursulineohstore/home.
What do I do after finals?
All books must be returned to the campus store when the term ends. After finals, please return your materials to the campus store by December 18, 2021. Materials that are not returned will be charged to your account.
I like keeping my books at the end of term; can I do that with this program?
After the term is complete, rented textbooks must be returned to the campus store. However, you can choose to keep the book by paying an additional fee at the campus store checkout.
