Complete Digital Access (CDA)

Complete Digital Access (CDA)

 

WELCOME TO COMPLETE DIGITAL ACCESS!
We are excited to offer courses which have chosen to offer Complete Digital Access titles. These required course materials will be available the first day of class through Isidore (isidore.udayton.edu), and the student account will be charged after the semester drop date. It’s that easy, there is nothing else to do but go to class.

HOW DO I ACCESS MY MATERIALS?
All Complete Digital Access materials are accessed through the course profile in Isidore (isidore.udayton.edu). The course instructor will provide specific directions or communication, if needed. If you’re having trouble or unable to get clarification from the instructor, contact textbooks@udayton.edu and reference Complete Digital Access Course.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COMPLETE DIGITAL ACCESS?
Complete Digital Access is a collaboration between professors, the publisher and the UD Bookstore to provide required materials automatically when you enroll in the course, all at a reduced cost.

WHAT IF I DROP THE COURSE?
As long as the course is dropped prior to the published drop date for the semester, there will not be a charge for the cost of the Complete Digital Access content.

HOW DO I PAY FOR MY COMPLETE DIGITAL ACCESS MATERIALS?
Course materials may be used free of charge the first day of class through the last day to drop a full term course without record. As long as the student remains opted in to the program (see below for detailed instructions about opting out), the student will be able to fully access the content needed until this point with no charge. On last day to drop a full term course, the UD Bookstore will automatically apply textbook scholarship funds to cover the price of Complete Digital Access. If there is not enough remaining funds on the textbook scholarship or if the student has not been awarded the scholarship, we will charge the excess to the student's University student account. Any students who opt out of the program or drop the class on or prior to the published drop date for the semester will not be charged for the materials, regardless of their use of the materials.

WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN COMPLETE DIGITAL ACCESS PROGRAM OR HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED MY COURSE MATERIAL ANOTHER WAY?
The UD Bookstore has worked with publishers to get students their course materials at the lowest possible price. These materials are required by the instructor. If the student decides that her or she does not want to participate, the student will need to opt out of the program and be sure that he or she is legally obtaining the material on their own. Upon opting out, the student will receive an email confirming the opt out, and will not be charged.   Should you choose to opt out of Complete Digital Access, please note, Faculty are not responsible for providing alternative materials or waiving course/class requirements.

HOW TO OPT OUT:
To opt out, click on the personalized link in an email to the student regarding course materials. Through this page, the student may choose to opt out or opt back in to each course. All of your courses will have the student listed as “opt in” unless otherwise specified and changed to mark as “opt out”. If the student has chosen to opt out and wishes to opt back in, it must be done before the published drop date for the semester.
