Follett Access Textbook Program

Follett ACCESS is a partnership between the Southern University System and the SUNO Bookstore that allows you to rent textbooks at a reduced cost. The charge is posted directly to your SUNO Tuition and Fees bill and can be paid along with your University charges or using financial aid.

Save money

We’ve found an even better way for SUNO students to save money and succeed from the very first day of class. With digital textbooks and materials through Follett ACCESS, you’ll get instant access, carry a lighter backpack, and save an average of 62% or more over printed books.

The goal of this program is to improve your success in the classroom and overall here at SUNO. This program helps all students start on day one with all the required materials needed to be successful.

Studies show students who don’t have their required course materials on the first day of class may be at a disadvantage. We want all Knights playing on the same field, so we are offering this program to all students.


How do I access my materials? How do I access my materials?

 

Accessing through an auto-provision email?
BrtyeWave (RedShelf) will be provisioned to the student’s academic email address. This will create an account for the student that they can log into on the BryteWave login and find the preloaded material.
The login URL for BryteWave is now located at https://brytewave.redshelf.com

While they can get in at the URL, they may have to request a password change if they don’t follow the activation link that was emailed to them. So, all ACCESS provisioned students will receive an email. If the student clicks the link in the email, it will pass them into their BryeWave shelf (which is the same as if they logged in at the login URL) and will be able to complete an account set up. (set password, etc.)

Even if you have opted out of the Follett ACCESS program, you can still purchase your required items from the bookstore. We know students who opt out may still need to use financial aid or scholarships in the bookstore. Please note, many of our items are custom priced for Follett ACCESS from publishers, and will be a different price than what is on the bookstore’s website. Some items --like physical books -- are readily available at the bookstore. Some, though, like courseware products (for example McGraw Connect and Pearson Mylab) may need to be specially ordered for you.
