As a West Academic Assessment school, FIU Law students receive ebooks at a 45% discount off the print price of a book.

To take advantage of this discount, students should visit West Academic Assessment, create an account with their FIU Law @fiu.edu student email address, and verify that account via email from West Academic. Current FIU Law students who have previously created a West Academic account through our West Academic Study Aids can sign in to West Academic Assessment utilizing their previously-created credentials so long as that account used your @fiu.edu student email.

Once the student's account is verified, they can select the ebooks they would like to purchase, and the discount will be applied automatically. West Academic eBooks adopted by FIU Law Faculty will be loaded in the system in the coming weeks; your patience is appreciated. Students who have purchased an ebook can also purchase a "print-on-demand" softcover edition of their selected books, priced at the cost of printing and shipping; delivery could take over two weeks. NOTE on Statutory Supplements: West Academic ebook is only economical if you are only purchasing the ebook. If you want print + ebook, there is a 15% off discount using FIULAW code at the West Academic store. Affected titles noted in "Notes" on Fall 2020 Booklist.

Attention in-coming 1Ls: your West Academic Assessment access will be available after you are registered with FIU Law.

Steps to Take Advantage of West Academic ebook Discount:

  1. To take advantage of the e-book discount, interested students should create accounts at West Academic Assessment.
    1. Any ebooks purchased will appear in the top section of their e-bookshelf.
    2. Fall 2020 Booklist ebooks and other ebooks available for discounted purchase to FIU Law students will appear - with a price banner on the book’s image - in a separate section. Students can click on the image to purchase. Once loaded, the ebook will move to the student’s ebooks at the top of the page in their e-bookshelf.
  2. Students purchasing print-on-demand books can do so at the same time as purchasing the ebook, or, depending on the adoption format required by their professor, purchase print-on-demand at a later time. NOTE that print-on-demand could take over two weeks from the time of order to receive.

If students have any questions as they go through the process of purchasing ebooks from West Academic, they can reach out to West Academic support team at (877) 888-1330 or support@westacademic.com.
