Day 1 Digital Access

Day 1 Digital Access (D1DA) is a collaborative program at CSULB with two main goals:

  • Reduce the cost of course materials
  • Provide access to the required course material on the first day of classes

How Does It Work?

  • The required course material will be available through BeachBoard in a digital format, whether e-book or courseware
  • Students will receive FREE access on the first day of classes
  • Discounted pricing has been negotiated with publishers
  • Students will have until the first add/drop deadline (without W) to OPT OUT
    • Generally 2 weeks after the first day of classes for the regular Fall or Spring semester
    • Deadline may be different for the Summer or Winter semester
  • After the opt-out deadline, any student who has not opted out will be charged to their CSULB student account allowing more time to pay
