Immediate Access Web Info

Immediate Access is a seamless means of connecting students and faculty with digital learning tools through one delivery gateway: Fresno State's Learning Management System (LMS), Blackboard. This direct-digital distribution billing model saves time and money and makes course materials accessible from desktop, laptop and mobile devices on the first day of class.

Cost Savings

Immediate Access is a less expensive delivery option than traditional textbooks and includes a suite of digital learning tools.

Eliminates delay

The charge for the Immediate Access course materials is billed directly to the students' Fresno State account for all enrolled students approximately 10 days prior to class start date. Students may access the materials on the first day of class from the LMS, Blackboard.

Product certainty

Unlike online purchases, students are guaranteed to have the correct Immediate Access course materials. There is no need to purchase an access code.

What is Immediate Access?

Kennel Bookstore and academic publishers are offering students and faculty the most up-to-date delivery of eBooks and adaptive learning platforms.

Additionally, specific program features such as interactive online assignments, multimedia presentations, virtual tutoring, dynamic study and self-assessment tools give students everything they need to study well and succeed!

Info for Students

All enrolled students are billed on their student account approximately 10 days prior to class start date. They're able to access the content by the first day of class.
  • Students enjoy access to the content up to the add/drop day set by campus.
  • If students choose to opt out, they can do so easily by following the instructions and links provided in their welcoming email sent 3 to 4 weeks prior to class start date. It is then turned off and no charge is assessed or a refund will be issued.
