Faculty Textbook Adoption GuideTextbook adoptions are to be submitted each semester for each CRN. Even if you don't require any textbooks for your course please let us know so that we can mark your course as 'No Text Required'.
Adoptions are normally due into the bookstore based on the following timeline:
|March 1||April 1||October 1|
Textbook buyback is an important service to students that occurs at the end of each semester. Not only does it give students the opportunity to sell back their textbooks for up to 50% cash back, it provides a lower cost 'USED' textbook option for future students. The timelines noted above play an important role in our ability to buy back textbooks from students. Textbooks that are re-adopted for the upcoming term will earn students more cash back during buyback (50% back). Textbooks that are not re-adopted are bought back at a national wholesale rate (0%-10%). Please help us keep textbook costs more affordable by submitting your adoptions on time. Submitting your adoption selections early also gives us & you time to re-act to titles that may be delayed due to edition change, out of print, custom publication or packaging by the publisher.
