StartRight+

 

What is it?

StartRight+ is a collaborative program between the University Store, faculty, and publishers. All undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in StartRight+ and will receive access to all required course materials.

StartRight+ provides ease and convenience, allowing students to acquire course materials at one predictable price. All required course materials will be listed in students' WyoCourses/Canvas class pages through the MyTextbooks sidebar navigation. As a digital-first program, any available material will be delivered digitally through WyoCourses/Canvas. If a course material is not available in a digital format, a physical copy can be picked up at the University Store. This may include course packets, lab manuals, and other course-related content.

StartRight+ is a flat rate of $275 per semester (Fall and Spring) for course materials upfront for the 2024-2025 academic year, giving undergraduate students a predictable cost.

Convenience

Students will no longer have to stress about academic materials during the busy start of the semester. Required digital course materials will automatically be available within their WyoCourses/Canvas account at the start of the semester. This means students can focus on finalizing their schedule and settling in without the added stress of evaluating course material prices.

Supports Student Success

Students are free to explore their academic interests without weighing the costs of the associated course materials. Once enrolled in a course, students have access to their materials, which means they can start studying right away. The digital format provides an accessible, easy-to-use navigation with enhanced functionality to help students collaborate and study.
