Course Materials/Textbook Requisitions Due Dates for Bookstore

Another way to support the Affordable Learning Solutions project is your attention to the textbook requisitions due dates. Submitting these on time will enable the bookstore to provide students with a variety of alternatives such as buyback, used books, rentals, etc.


  • Summer 2020: February 28, 2020
  • Fall 2020: 4/3/20 April 3, 2020
  • Winter 2021: October 2, 2020
  • Spring 2021: 10/9/20 October 9, 2020

We appreciate your efforts to comply with these due dates. Our goal is to have our booklist ready by the time registration starts for each quarter, and have most of our shipments received before finals week of the prior quarter. Timely textbook information for each quarter is also critical for the Disability Resource Center to process alternate media requests for students who have difficulty using traditional printed materials. Typical turn-around for alternate media conversion of textbooks is 4-6 weeks - late faculty orders have a significant negative impact on student learning outcomes for these students.
