What is the Follett Access Course Materials program?

UNF has collaborated with Follett Bookstores and several national publishers to offer Follett's ACCESS program which delivers digital course materials to students at a substantial discount on or before the first day of class. Follett's ACCESS Program allows students to receive their discounted course materials. With a few easy steps, students gain instant access to their course materials and save more than 40% off the national retail price.

How do I know if I'm eligible for Follett Access?

If you take a class that participates in Follett Access, you will be enrolled in the program automatically. You will receive an introductory email to your UNF account when we identify that you are enrolled in a participating class, which will be followed by an official email from Follett Access / the UNF Bookstore detailing how to access your materials and how to opt-out of the program if you prefer to purchase your class materials elsewhere.

Participating in this program, will bring deeply discounted prices on your course materials, the guaranteed right materials, and the ability to access your course materials on or before the first day of class.

How do I opt-out of Follett Access?

If you are enrolled in the Follett Access program, watch for an email from Follett Access that includes an opt-out link. Expect this email within 1-3 business days of your welcome email unless the opt-out period has not opened yet, in which case you can expect the Bookstore's email after the opt-out window begins. If you don’t have your email available, visit the ACCESS Customer Portal.  

The window to opt out begins about four weeks before classes begin and extends until near the end of the add/drop period. Review the UNF Academic Calendar for specific add/drop dates for each semester. 

When is the last day to opt-out of the program? 

The last day to opt-out of the Follett Access program is on the day after drop/add ends.

Can I opt-in after I have opted-out? 

Yes! If you have opted-out, you can opt-in again through the customer portal.

What will the charge look like on my bill?

Charges will begin to appear on your bill only after your ability to opt out starts. When making a payment in Cashnet, these will be included in the total charges. When looking at the detailed View Bill by Term - these will appear as Bookstore under the Charges section.

Changes to your bill may take up to a day to be processed after you opt out or your registration changes.

How do I access my course materials?

For courseware with codes: On the Order Release Date, you will receive an email from the bookstore (Follett), with the subject line "your digital materials have arrived." The email will contain a link to Canvas and your access code. You need to go to your course's Canvas page in order to redeem your code. The link provided will only bring you to the Canvas login page.

For ebooks: On the Order Release Date, you will receive an email from Redshelf containing an activation link. You must use your UNF email address to create an account and the book will be on your shelf. If you cannot find the link in your email, you can also go to

What happens if I drop a course?

If you drop your course before the end of the University opt out period closes, your charge will be removed and your access to the course materials will be revoked. If you drop or withdrawal after that time, you'll need to contact the UNF Bookstore to discuss options.
