Textpaks may be obtained through the Study.net website and may be downloaded in electronic form one month prior to the first day of classes. Accessing textpaks online entails being enrolled in the course.
Students enrolled in the course will receive email notification when their textpaks are public. Instructions, including the textpak password, will be posted on the Smartsite course page. Students may then login, search for their course and then begin viewing the pak online. It is that easy!
Once the textpak is accessed, students may choose to view textpaks online, print textpaks themselves or order a hard copy that will be sent directly to the student via First Class Mail. If a student decides to order a printed textpak, it will be shipped immediately and will be received within 3-4 days of the order date. The advantage of using Study.net over traditional textpak providers is the convenience of instantaneous access to course readings online and it provides students with the choice to print materials or not.
Sacramento Part-time students will not be charged for viewing text pak on-line or for ordering a printed copy.
