Changes to Access Now beginning Spring 2022

WHAT DOES OPT OUT MEAN?
Opt out is the "standard" model of an inclusive access program, such as Access Now. No more codes. No more terminations for those who do not purchase by said date. Students who enroll in an Access Now course will now be assessed a course material charge to their student account. Students will then have the freedom to opt out by the 100% refund date of the course if they wish to not participate in the negotiated, discount price for the materials.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STUDENT OPTS OUT?
When a student opts out of participating in the Access Now program their access will be terminated via Blackboard and the student will be required, if they choose to do so, to find the materials on their own. The course material charge will also be refunded. Should the student wish to opt in, they have until the 100% refund date to do so to regain immediate access to the materials again. This is performed by clicking a button available in the course shell until the end of the refund period.
HOW MANY TIMES MAY A STUDENT OPT OUT & BACK IN?
Students may only opt out and back in once. Therefore, if a student opts out, they will have the ability to opt back in once.
WHAT IF THE STUDENT OPTS OUT & REALIZES AFTER THE ADD/DROP DATE THEY WANT TO PARTICIPATE?
Simple; the student will need to visit the Shocker Store and purchase the subscription to reactivate their materials.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO ME AS A STUDENT?
  • Affordable – most affordable option in the market; through cost savings you can spread your dollar further.
  • Convenient – all students have access on/before the first day of class regardless of financial aid status.
  • Worry/Hassle Free – materials are located in one location, Blackboard; don’t have to stress over course materials and where you will purchase and if they are the correct materials.
  • Accessibility/Study Assistance – all materials meet/exceed standards set forth by the National Federation of the Blind and have study assistance like: audio books, flashcard making, note taking, highlighting, bookmarking and more.
