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 that will be assessed to all registered student accounts at the time of course registration. This allows every enrolled student access to all required materials on the first day of classes.
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. If books are shipped you will receive an email notification from CUSTOMERSERVICE@EFOLLETT.COM.
Students will be charged $34 per credit hour. For example, if you are taking 12 credit hours, you will be charged $408.00 (12 x 34 = 408) for access to the program. That is $237 less than the national average of $645 per semester.
Providing digital books allows the program to be more cost effective for students, quicker access to books and materials and gives students greater flexibility. Books and materials that are not in digital format, will be shipped to your mailing address reflected in your MyUDC portal, my.udc.edu. If books are shipped you will receive an email notification from CUSTOMERSERVICE@EFOLLETT.COM.
