Digital Engagement Initiative (DEI) Ebooks

Receive Electronic Textbooks Automatically

Motlow State has partnered with Follett Bookstore to provide the Digital Engagement Initiative (DEI) program. Students enrolled in specific courses are charged an ebook fee for the online book and online homework. You are automatically charged the price to your student account. You have access to all the required DEI material on the first day of class. TN Promise or TN Reconnect does not cover DEI fees.

Opt-Out Option for DEI

You can opt-out of the DEI program if you do not want to purchase the course materials provided to you as part of the program. A few weeks before class, the bookstore sends instructions to your Motlow email. If your instructor does not require the ebook or online access, you will still be required to opt-out to avoid paying the fee. If you opt-out, you will be responsible for obtaining the required course materials on your own. If you opt-out, you have until the deadline to opt back in. Contact your instructor to ensure the material is needed.

It can take 1-2 business days to remove the ebook fee from your account.

DEI Fees for Dropped Courses

The DEI fees are 100% refundable if dropped before the bookstore deadline for each part of the term. If you drop a course after the opt-out date, the DEI fee is non-refundable.
