Welcome USI Faculty

First Day Access (FDA)

The First Day Access program through the USI Campus Store helps lower the cost of course materials for our students. When you make FDA available for your class, students automatically receive digital course materials through Blackboard on or before the first day of class.

 

Although students can opt-out of the digital materials and purchase their materials elsewhere, very few choose to do so because of the convenience and competitive pricing. Students who remain opted into their digital course materials will have their bursar account billed.

 

If you are interested in offering this savings to your students for summer or fall classes, I’d be happy to discuss this further with you.  Contact Mike Goelzhauser, Campus Store Manager,  via email bookorder@usi.edu or phone 812-465-1649

 

Why does the Campus Store need textbook requests so early?

Because Early Book Requests = More Used/Rental Books for Students.
If we know what books you want to use next term BEFORE the end of the current term, we can increase our supply of lower-cost, used/rental books for next term's students.


How?

  • First we buy back unwanted, used copies from students on campus during finals. We would prefer to pay students cash than to the publishers.
  • Then we start purchasing used copies from national used book wholesalers.
  • Once we've exhausted these options, we purchase new books from the publishers and distributors.
  • If we don't know what books you're using until a few weeks before the start of term, we have little opportunity to get used copies for your incoming students.

Did You Know?

  • The USI Campus Store funds a $2,000.00 scholarship to each college (College of Business, College of Liberal Arts, etc.) yearly.
  • The USI Campus Store contributes to various campus departments.
  • The USI Campus Store is a proud sponsor of the USI Dance Team.
  • The USI Campus Store is a proud sponsor of USI Athletics.
  • The USI Campus Store is a supporter of the USI Alumni Association.
  • The USI Campus Store is university owned/operated.
  • All of the USI Campus Store profits go back to the university.
