Textbook Adoption for UF Faculty and Staff



Information on deadlines and policy will be listed here and will change periodically.

  • The textbook adoption system for Summer and Fall 2017 is now available to faculty and departments to submit their Summer and Fall 2017 textbook adoptions and materials requirements.

    The deadline for Summer and Fall 2017 adoptions is March 27, 2017. This date coincides with the beginning of advance registration and when students can view their course textbook and materials requirements. This information is also available online to all bookstores to help them ensure appropriate arrival of texts and better prices for student book buybacks.

    Knowledge of course textbook and materials requirements helps students balance their course loads based on reading demands and financial needs – including the purchasing of books.

    Timely entry of this information also provides students their best opportunity to sell books back at higher prices. Bookstores typically will not offer to buy back texts unless the text is listed as being used the next semester. Timely posting of textbook adoptions has the strong support of the student body, and it is a law in Florida Statutes. UF students continue to endorse the availability of textbook information online and have indicated it aids in course selection.

  • For compliance-monitoring purposes, the final deadline date to submit text adoptions is March 24, 2017 for Summer courses and July 7, 2017 for Fall courses.
