Summary

Unizin is creating an experience for Students in Order Tool to enable them to either opt-in or opt-out of their inclusive access course materials. In order to accommodate the various student choice needs across our member institutions, Unizin has created an Institution-wide configurable model that will enable institutions to create their student choice experience.

The model is based on the following concepts, each of which can be configured by the institution:

  1. Student choice policy. This defines the broad variables of a student choice policy that is applied across the institution. The policy creates the student opt-in or opt-out experience in Order Tool and any related workflows for administrators. 
  2. Student choice policy exceptions. Most institutions define various types of exceptions or exemptions from their student choice policy. Unizin will provide support for them and enforce them in the user experience.

  3. Student choice workflow. Every institution delivers a different experience to students as they work through the process of opting in or out. That experience extends to the student journey after the student opts-in or opts-out, typically through the first few weeks of a term.
  4. Business alerts. Every institution delivers a different experience to students as they work through the process of opting in or out. That experience extends to the student journey after the student opts-in or opts-out, typically through the first few weeks of a term.

With the exception of Student choice policy exceptions, all other concepts will be implemented in an institution's Order Tool tenant in coordination with the Institution's Sponsor team and the Unizin Services team. In order to implement Student choice policy exceptions for the model in Order Tool, we require institutions to send us additional student enrollment data through the SIS feeds to enforce the exceptions. 

Student Choice policy exceptions must be defined globally to all campuses, courses, and sections. For example, institutions cannot enforce a particular exception to one campus and not to another.
