What is Day1Access?

The Day1Access program (also referred to as D1A) is a digital textbook model in collaboration with top publishers to reduce the cost of required course materials. The University Store has ensured that all Day1Access materials will have the lowest cost to the student possible – even lower than buying the material directly from the publisher. Access for all students begins the first day of class, with the option to opt-out of purchasing through the drop/add period. Each course utilizing Day1Access materials has received approval to digitally deliver required course materials to students from the instructor of that course or the course coordinator.

How do I get my required course materials through the Day1Access Program?

Your required digital course materials are delivered through Folio. Access begins the first day of class. Go to My.GeorgiaSouthern.edu, Login, select Folio, and select your course. Your instructor will have a link posted for you to access your Day1Access material. Not Seeing Your Course in Folio? If you don't see a class in FOLIO, and the semester has not yet started, your instructor has likely not activated your course yet. Your Day1Access material will not be available until the first day of classes even if the course is active in Folio. If you are concerned about access, please email your instructor. 

How much does Day1Access cost?

Prices are negotiated and vary depending upon the course materials chosen by the instructor but are contracted to be lower than competitive market rates. The University Store has ensured that all materials delivered through Day1Access will have the lowest cost to the student possible. To view the cost of your Day1Access material, you can view your Course Book List found in MyGeorgiaSouthern, or view your Student Billing Account found in WINGS as early as the first day of the month that the semester in question begins.

How do I pay for my access?

Once you have registered for a Day1Access course, you will automatically be charged for the material on your Student Billing Account. This charge will become available on the first day of the month that the semester begins. If you register for any Day1Access classes during the drop/add period, the charge will become available sometime that day, but not immediately. All enrolled students who have not opted-out of the program or dropped the course during the drop/add period will have the charge applied to their Student Billing Account. The cost of the required digital content for Day1Access will appear on your Student Billing Account as a Bookstore Charge.

What does it mean to opt-out?

If you do not wish to purchase the required course materials through the Day1Access program at the contractually discounted rate, you have until the last day of the drop/add period to opt-out. If you opt- out by the deadline, access to the online content will be turned off and the cost will be removed from your Student Billing Account found in WINGS. Charges are updated regularly throughout the day, but not immediately.

How do I opt-out?

To Opt-Out, log in to Folio, and there will be a prompt to Opt-Out of the delivery of the digital product. Select the correct option to opt-out and submit. If you opt-out, you will be responsible for purchasing your own materials.

I dropped the course. Do I still need to opt-out?

Students who drop the course before the drop/add deadline will automatically be "opted-out". There are no refunds for students who drop after the drop/add deadline.

I did not opt-out, but I did not register my access or use the online platform. Will I have to pay?

Yes. All students who are enrolled in a course using Day1Access are automatically considered part of the program as the digital access is a required component of the course. To avoid paying for the digital materials you must opt-out through your Folio course home page before the drop/add deadline.

I forgot to opt-out and missed the deadline. Can I get a refund now?

Once the cost of the required course materials has been applied to your Student Billing Account and the drop/add period has passed, there are no refunds.

I opted out by mistake and realized that I still need my access. Can I opt back in?

Yes. To opt back in before the add/drop deadline, you will log in to Folio and select the prompt to opt back in after selecting the link to the material in Folio. If you do not opt back in before the add/drop date, please visit the University Store Textbook Office for assistance.

I have further questions that were not addressed. Who do I contact?

For Day1Access questions email the Textbook Office – Textbooks@GeorgiaSouthern.edu
