First Day® Complete

Coastal Carolina University is pleased to offer a new course material fulfillment program, 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 before the first day of class.

First Day® Complete drives successful student outcomes by allowing students to save 35-50% on the cost of course materials each term and benefit from a highly personalized concierge service.

Through First Day® Complete, physical books will be conveniently packaged and provided to students on a rental basis. Digital materials will be delivered directly through Moodle. 

   How it Works


Upon registering for classes, students will automatically be enrolled in the program. Once you've successfully selected your courses, the Chanticleer Store will start preparing your order. 


Starting 30 days before the first day of classes, you will receive an email to verify your order and select your fulfillment preferences (delivery vs pick-up). 


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.
