A: For undergraduate Nursing students we highly recommend the following path for opt-out. Because course materials are provided for 3 quarters at a time, undergraduate Nursing students should not opt for their 1st or 4th quarter in the program as these are the quarters in which you will receive all your required course materials. For Quarters 2, 3, 5 and 6, you will not be receiving any new Nursing course materials so we would highly recommend opting out for these quarters. If you are registered for non-Nursing courses during quarters 2, 3, 5 or 6 and find that the cost of being in the program is more financially beneficial based on those non-Nursing courses specifically you are welcome to remain in the program. Otherwise, you have the option to opt-out and purchase your non-Nursing required materials through the Akademos portal separately.
