Follett Access Opt Out for Textbook Purchase

For all Inclusive Access textbooks you will have the option to opt out of purchasing the book. You must choose this option before the deadline of the last day to drop a course and receive a 100% refund. This is typically at the end of the first week of classes for the Fall and Spring semesters.
You can check the Academic Calendar for these dates for the summer session courses.

Follett Discover

Note: If you purchase a book through a different supplier, even if it is one your instructor
suggests in your course, you will still be charged for the Follett Discover textbook unless you opt-out.
Follow the guidelines below to see how to opt-out.

Opt In:

To Opt In you do not need to do anything. The textbook will be available to you on the first day of class within the Canvas course. The cost of the textbook will be charged to your Student Account.

Opt Out:

The Follett Campus Bookstore will send an email to you with instructions on how to Opt Out of the textbook for the course. You may contact the Follett Campus Bookstore if you have any questions about this process.

Here is the email you will receive at the beginning of the semester, this is just a sample, dates are not accurate.

(Note that this will not be from your instructor or from a UNL email address)
