First Day® Complete

Coastal Carolina University is pleased to offer a course material delivery model, First Day® Complete. In partnership with the Chanticleer Store, powered by Barnes and Noble College, First Day® Complete ensures that students have their required course materials on or before the first day of class. Through First Day® Complete, physical books are conveniently packaged and provided to students on a rental basis. Digital materials are delivered directly through Moodle. Upon registering for classes each semester, all Coastal Carolina University students are automatically enrolled in First Day® Complete. All students have the opportunity to opt out of the program each semester. 

   How it Works


Upon registering for classes, students will automatically be enrolled in the program. 


Starting 30 days before the first day of classes, you will receive an email to confirm your materials and select your fulfillment preferences (delivery vs pick-up) or opt out. *Instructions sent to your email address.


An email notification will be sent when your order is ready for pick up or when it ships. Your digital materials will be delivered for your course(s) within Moodle.
