Faculty and departments should submit their Summer 2012 and Fall 2012 textbook adoptions and course materials requirements at by March 26, 2012 so that this information is available to students during advance registration. This information is also available online to all bookstores to help them ensure appropriate arrival of texts for Summer and Fall terms and better prices for student book buybacks.

Students can view Summer and Fall course textbook and course materials requirements online during advance registration, which begins March 26, 2012. This information helps students balance their course loads based on reading requirements and plan for their 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 requirements has the strong support of the student body, and it is a requirement 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 for Summer and Fall courses is April 1, 2012.
