Summer and Fall 2020 Textbook Adoptions
Joseph Glover, Provost and Senior Vice President
The textbook adoption system for Summer and Fall 2020 is now available to faculty and departments to submit their textbook adoptions and materials requirements. Please visit http://www.textadoption.ufl.edu/ to enter Summer and Fall 2020 adoptions.
In order to facilitate timely ordering of materials by the UF Bookstore, please submit Summer and Fall adoptions, by March 23, 2020.
For compliance with Florida Statutes, please submit adoptions no later than the following:
- Summer 2020 adoptions: March 27, 2020.
- Fall 2020 adoptions: July 10, 2020.
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.
If you have any questions about the textbook adoption submission process, please contact the textbook adoption website administrator at TextAdoption-WebHelp@bsd.ufl.edu.
