    For compliance with Florida Statutes, please submit adoptions no later than the following:
    • Summer 2024 adoptions: March 23, 2024.
    • Fall 2024 adoptions: July 3, 2024.

    Changes to summer or fall 2024 instructional materials adoptions made after the deadlines posted above are out of compliance with UF Regulation 7.049 and Florida Board of Governors Regulation 8.003.

    In order to facilitate timely ordering of materials by the UF Bookstore, please submit summer and fall adoptions early, by March 18, 2024.

    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 with the 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.

  • If you have questions about the textbook adoptions help is available:
