Due to the remarkable success of UNCG’s First Day Complete program in Fall 2023 – with a prior academic year student savings of nearly $2.5 million – the University is expanding the program beginning Fall 2024. 

First Day Complete provided students with immediate access to essential course materials and contributed to a more seamless and productive academic experience. Beginning in Fall 2024, graduate students can participate in the First Day Complete program – enabling all UNCG students to benefit. 

Key features of the First Day Complete program for students:

  • Immediate Access: Graduate and undergraduate students can enjoy the same quick and easy access to required course materials, fostering a dynamic and prepared learning environment. 
  • Cost Savings: The University remains dedicated to reducing our students’ overall cost of attendance. The First Day Complete program provides an affordable option for accessing essential course materials. Students can save as much as 50 percent on course materials each semester, and starting Fall 2024, the First Day Complete program participation cost will decrease to $19 per credit hour. Remember, First Day Complete offers free shipping or pick-up at the bookstore. 
  • Streamlined Process: Our streamlined process has received overwhelmingly positive feedback. In a recent UNCG Bookstore survey, 92 percent of students said they found it convenient to have course materials bundled and delivered to them through the First Day Complete program. 
  • Opt-Out Option: UNCG understands that individual preferences and circumstances may vary, and we are making the process even easier for students who wish to opt out of the First Day Complete program. We respect our students’ choice and want to ensure that they have the flexibility that best suits their needs. 

This exciting expansion to include all students aligns with our commitment to providing valuable resources to all members of our academic community. As we approach the start of the 2024-2025 academic year, students and faculty will receive additional information on the First Day Complete program. If you have any immediate questions or want to learn more, please visit our First Day Complete website or contact the UNCG Bookstore at

We wish you a successful conclusion to the spring semester and look forward to continuing to support our students!
