New First Day Complete Program to Purchase Textbooks and Course Materials Starting for Fall 2021

Hawkeye is moving to a new course material model, called First Day Complete, that will reduce the cost of required course materials for students and ensure they have all their materials for all courses prior to the first day of class.

Students who have opted into the First Day Complete program will have the convenience of the Hawkeye Bookstore put together a package of physical books and digital material for all courses prior to the first day of class. Digital materials will be delivered directly to CANVAS. Students who have opted in to the First Day Complete program will be billed at a rate of $23/credit hour to their student account.

Students can opt in or opt out of the program.

Students who do not opt in or have opted out of the First Day Complete program will need to purchase their books and course materials a la carte or by other method of their choice.
