Payment Info




How do I pay for my First Day™ courses?

When you register for a First Day™ course, the cost of digital course materials is included as a charge on your student account. This charge is automatically added to your tuition and fees and is only applicable to courses enrolled in the First Day™ program. You will have access to the required materials by the first day of class. This fee is applied each time you register for a First Day course, including if a class is repeated. You'll see a charge labeled "First Day [Name of Course] Courseware" on your student bill. For more information on paying your student bill, please visit Spartan Central Tuition, Billing & Payments.




What happens if I drop a class?

If you drop a First Day™ course, you will be refunded according to UNCG’s policies for refunds on tuition and fees. You will have to pay the First Day™ Course Materials charge again if you re-register.

Accessing Materials




How do I access First Day™ course materials?

Once the course is opened by the instructor, students will be able to access their digital course materials through Canvas. First-time users will need to create an account with the publisher providing the course material. Please ensure your pop-up blocker is disabled within your browser during use.




What if I want a physical copy of the textbook?

Most publishers give students the option of purchasing a very affordable loose-leaf copy of the book through the campus bookstore. The loose-leaf copy can also be ordered online from the bookstore and shipped directly to your home.




Are the digital textbooks ADA compliant? Are resources available if I need specific accommodations?

Yes, all First Day course materials are required to be ADA compliant. Students in need of accommodations should work with their instructors and UNCG Bookstore. Contact the Office of Accessibility Resources & Services (OARS) for general information about receiving accommodations.




Student Tutorials

Opting-Out




Is there an Opt-Out for the First Day™ course materials?

Always! It’s your choice to participate in the First Day™ program. In order to give everyone the best opportunity to get their course materials early and at the lowest negotiated price, you are automatically enrolled in the program when you register for the course. If you decide you want to shop around, you can follow the instructions to opt-out at the bottom of this section.


IMPORTANT REFUND NOTE: If you opt-out and then decide you want to opt-back in, you have until the OPT-OUT deadline (see below for appropriate semester). Your First Day™ charges will remain on your student bill until the First Day™ files are adjusted and then the appropriate refund will be applied to your student account. This is typically adjusted within the first two weeks of classes.


If you choose to opt out of First Day™, remember that you are still responsible for accessing materials assigned by your instructor. You may not be able to engage with all of the e-learning platform tools required for your course, including quizzes, tests, learning modules, e-books and assignments. We hope you will stay in the First Day™ program and see how it offers significant savings on all of your First Day™ course materials.





Opt-Out requests must be received for the Spring 2021 semester by January 27 (add/drop deadline):

  • 1. Log into Canvas.
  • 2. Navigate to your course.
  • 3. Click on Course Materials located in the left-hand course menu.
  • 4. After clicking Course Materials you will be redirected to the Course Materials page.
  • 5. To opt-out you need to click the Opt-Out link at the top right side of the window. (On this page you will also see the opt-in price, the opt-out price and the deadline to make a decision.)
  • 6. A pop-up window will open asking you to confirm that you would like to opt-out. Select the check box and click Confirm to opt-out.
  • 7. You will then get the Confirmation page that you have opted-out.
