How does Follett ACCESS Textbook Program work?
The Follett ACCESS Textbook Program takes the hassle out of course material buying because course material costs are covered as part of the tuition. This allows every enrolled student access to all required materials on day one. Once you have selected your courses, your course list will be sent to Pfeiffer University Campus Store. The campus store gets everything ready for you. All you need to do is pick up your required course materials at the campus store located in the Stokes Student Center starting August 12, 2022.
Students can verify the format of their materials on the Pfeiffer Campus Store Apparel, Merchandise, & Gifts (bkstr.com). If the text says New, Used, or Rental, the book will be physical; if the text says Digital, the book will be accessible in Blackboard. Physical course materials will be available at the campus store located in the Stokes Student Center starting August 12, 2022.
The cost of materials will vary per course but you will not pay out of pocket for your required course materials, as costs are covered in your tuition.
