Textbook Adoptions

Textbook adoptions for spring are needed. On time textbook adoptions are essential for maximizing the value and impact of textbook buyback. When a book is re-adopted for the spring semester and the store is in need of inventory:

  • Re-adopted textbooks can be bought from students at the end of the semester
  • Students get more cash from buyback
  • More used books are available for students in the following semester
  • Shipping expenses are reduced
