Textbook Adoption Dates

Course Materials Adoption for fall 2018 are due April 20, 2018. On time adoptions mean more used books available for students AND more money in students’ pockets through buyback. On time adoptions also mean more materials are available before the start of classes. Please submit textbook/course material adoptions to the UMW Bookstore by the due date so that the store can maximize payment to students for books they wish to sell, and increase the ability to fulfill students’ orders before the start of class.

There is a $2,500* Pepsi Textbook Scholarship fund for students, offered to the first department to reach 100% on-time adoption rate.
*In the event of a tie, funds will be divided
