First Day Inclusive Access

Wayne State University and your Campus Bookstore have announced a new course material affordability pilot program called First Day® 

A direct charge for the required course material will be placed on your student account and you may opt-out within CANVAS until 9/16/2020. If you elect to opt-out, a refund will be placed against your student account, and you will be responsible for sourcing the course material on your own.

This affordability program is the result of Wayne State University, Barnes & Noble Education, and Publishers nationwide working together to help reduce the price of course material to students. By offering your course material as a direct charge against your student account, we are able to deliver your required course material to you digitally via CANVAS at a discounted price.  In fact, your final price is equal or lower than publisher direct pricing.  

To learn more about the First Day course material billing program, please see the First Day FAQ page on our customer care site www.customercare.bncollege.com.

You may also join the Microsoft TEAM for FirstDay Course Material.  The bookstore staff will monitor the TEAM channel and assist with questions via chat, share step-by-step directions as needed, and assist with basic troubleshooting.  Join the conversation here First Day Course Material Program.

For a demo of how to access your material via Canvas, click here First Day Course Material Student Demo Video.  There are different ways you will access your course material depending on the method the publisher uses.  The steps to access your course material will become clear when you click on the course material link withing your CANVAS course on your first day of class.  If you have questions, please review the video again or visit the customer care website for troubleshooting tips and tricks.  www.customercare.bncollege.com
