11 Follett Access Opt-Out for Textbook Purchase

For all Inclusive Access textbooks students will have the option to opt-out of purchasing the book. They 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.

Information for Students opt-out options are available in the Student Guide to Inclusive Access: Follett Access Opt Out for Textbook Purchase

Best practice is to inform students that the opt out email will come from Follett and not you or the University. The email will look like this:

From: noreply@follett.com
To: xxxxxxxx@huskers.unl.edu
Subject: Welcome to University of Nebraska – Lincoln Bookstore Customer Portal!
A full page example is listed in the Student Guide to Inclusive Access.
This is a suggested email template you can use to send to your students in a course using Follett Discover materials.
Bold text in ( ) is for information you need to edit that will be specific to your course and the semester.

Your textbook will be available through the Follett Discover (Or Publisher Tool) link in your Canvas course on day-one of the class. You will be charged for the cost of the textbook on your student account bill. You have the option to opt out of the purchase at the beginning of the course. If you opt out before the deadline of (Enter Deadline Date*), you will not be charged for the text and you will not have access to the textbook in Canvas after the deadline passes.

You will receive an email from Follett explaining how to opt out of the purchase.
