Student Guide: Follett ACCESS

Follett Access Course materials for all logo

The FSW Follett Access program is offered through the FSW Bookstore and is designed to give you access to your required course material on the first day of class at the lowest available price so you are prepared to succeed. If these are digital items, they will be provided to you via email or directly in their course in Canvas and the charge for all material is placed on your student account when you register for classes. With the Access Program, you will be prepared for their first day of classes, and this is the most convenient and affordable way to get all needed homework access codes and textbooks.
