This course is enrolled in the Iowa State University Immediate Access Program.
What is Immediate Access?
Immediate Access is a collaborative affordability initiative between the ISU Book Store, faculty, and publishers. Students that are enrolled in an Immediate Access course will receive access to all required digital course materials the first day of class and at a reduced cost compared to the national average.
What is the title and price of the required content for this course?
This information is posted in your student booklist through Access Plus, or it can be accessed by going to www.isubookstore.com/textbooks and searching by the course for which you are enrolled.
How is Immediate Access billed?
You will be automatically charged on your u-bill for this digital content. The billing description on your u-bill will show the department and course number, followed by “IMMED ACCESS” and the last 4 digits of the billing ISBN. The following is an example of the billing description for a student enrolled in PSYCH 101: “PSYCH 101 IMMED ACCESS 2187”
What if I drop the course?
Students who drop the course within the first 10 days of class will receive a refund on their u-bill (5 days for courses 8 weeks or shorter). You do not have to notify the bookstore if you drop the course. This is an automated process.
Can I opt out of Immediate Access?
Students may choose to opt out of the program. Opting out does not mean you are dropping the course. It simply means you are choosing not to receive the digital content from the bookstore and you must find another way to acquire it in order to complete required homework assignments. Students have within the first 10 days of class to opt out and receive a refund to their u-bill (5 days for courses 8 weeks or shorter). Instructions on how to opt out will be emailed shortly before classes start.
How do I access the required digital content?
There is a tool on the navigation menu of your Canvas course called Immediate Access Course Materials. You will receive an email shortly before classes start that will instruct you on how to access the required digital course materials. You may not be able to access the digital content until the first day of class.
