Winter Term textbook adoption update

The deadline for Winter Term textbook adoption was Oct. 1, however, faculty still have the opportunity to adopt the course materials they need. Currently, 22 per cent of expected adoptions have been received by the Campus Bookstore.

If you have missed the adoption deadline, contact the Campus Bookstore as soon as possible. The adoption form is available online while the Campus Bookstore website offers information on the Faculty Homepage.

The mission of the Campus Bookstore is to provide course-required materials at the lowest prices possible. To that end faculty are encouraged to adopt their books as early as possible, to readopt the same textbooks and to consider low-cost or free online alternatives.

Submitting textbook adoptions early allows bookstore staff to purchase used copies, and seek out other cost-saving alternatives for students.

Upcoming textbook adoption deadlines are:

  • Spring Term: March 1, 2020
  • Spring-Summer Term: March 1, 2020
  • Summer Term: May 1, 2020
