What is Follett Access?

Course materials will be offered at a discounted price of $27.63 per credit hour.

How do I get my Books?

Once you have selected your courses, your materials will be made available to you through Canvas.

How do I Opt Out?

Your high school counselor will facilitate the opt out process.
