GENERAL DIRECT DIGITAL ACCESS INFORMATION

Direct Digital Access is a program that provides each registered student with the required course materials in a low cost digital format. Your course materials will be available to you directly through Canvas. Providing your course materials to you directly in a digital format is a much more cost effective approach and has been adopted as part of the college’s textbook affordability efforts.

An additional benefit of the Direct Digital Access program is that every registered student in the class will have access to the course materials for the first scheduled class meeting. You will no longer need to purchase a textbook from the bookstore and you will have access through Canvas to your course materials 3 days prior to the start date of the class. The Direct Digital Access fee will be applied to your student account (semester bill).

If you do not wish to participate in the Direct Digital Access program, you must opt out using the opt-out link in Canvas for your class before the opt-out date. If you opt out, a credit in the amount of the Direct Digital Access fee will be applied to your student account and your access to the digital course materials will be removed. If you opt out, you are still responsible for acquiring the course materials from an alternative source.
