In the event that the exact same adoption is being offered to a student for the first time in the same term in multiple courses, perhaps two courses as an example, then only one record of an entitlement is captured and will appear in the Final Declined Offers Feed. Multiple entitlements will not be created for the same title offered in many courses in the same term because at least one of those courses will assume a fee should be charged to the student for the materials. Depending on how many courses offer the same adoption will depend upon how many entitlement records appear in the feed. In the example of a student being offered a title in two courses in the same term for the first time, only one entitlement record will exist. The purchase history in the Order Tool user interface indicates that the same title has been adopted within the same term, but it does not mean that a student was actually charged for that title twice. It simply represents that the student has the same title being offered in two courses in the same term at the same time with the price listed, and the existing term is when the initial (one time) charge will occur for the student. Only institutions may charge students for the purchase of digital materials. The Final Declined Offers Feed is not intended to be used as an invoice. Rather, it is a feed that captures all records of student choices and entitlements for a term in order to provide data to an institution so they may determine what students should not be charged.
