Instant Access FAQ
WHAT IS INSTANT ACCESS?Some of our classes require an “Instant Access” also known as a “Proof of Purchase” from the Bookstore to view your online content. THIS IS NOT AN ACCESS CODE. When you are enrolled in one of these classes, the textbook company has given you a trial period where you have free access to your course materials. This trial is provided so that you have a grace period to purchase your instant access or proof of purchase from the Bookstore. At the end of this trial your access will expire and you will no longer have access to your course materials. Once this expires you will have to purchase rights thru the textbook company which is considerably more expensive. The Bookstore also has a limited time to sell you the continued use of the online content. We stop selling Instant Access/ Proof of Purchase on the last day to drop your classes and receive 100% refund. Usually 10 days into your semester. Some of these classes offer an optional loose-leaf book to accompany your online content. This cannot be purchased unless you have purchased rights to view your online course materials.
