Transforming the Way Course Materials are Delivered

The Follett ACCESS program takes the hassle out of course material buying because course material costs are covered as part of the Follett All Access Fee ($34 per credit hour) that will be assessed to all registered student accounts by early August.  This allows every enrolled student access to all required materials on day one*. Once you have selected your courses, your course list will be sent to the UDC Bookstore. The campus store will get everything ready for you. Most books are digital and will be made available in digital format and during the pandemic non-digital books and supplies will be mailed to your home.
