The University has partnered with the Co-op to ensure compliance with the federal law, HEOA & HB33. The Co-op collects the course material requirements for all UT courses and makes the information available to the students by way of the UT registration website or the Co-op website. The list is also freely available to competing bookstores. The federal law requires this information to be visible to students at least 30 days prior to classes beginning every semester.
We've taken that one step further - our Online Price Comparison Textbook tool for students displays real-time market choices for students to choose from so they can find the best prices possible for their books. Students can see purchasing and rental pricing options from the Co-op as well as many national sources like Amazon, AbeBooks, and many more. Check it out here!
Our goal is to provide the best textbook options for students. After we receive your textbook adoption, our office researches the title availability then adopts it to the course. If we adopt the book prior to our buyback period (which begins in late April and late November), we are able to offer a great buyback price to students (usually 50% of the new book price or 75% of the used book price).
The earlier we receive your adoption the better, this allows us to offer better buy back prices to your students, or to find better sourcing on the market -- lowering costs to your students!
Looking to adopt your books for Spring 2017? We'll be launching our new adoption portal in late October. Check back soon to access our new tool. Once it is live, you'll receive an email from the University Co-op that will link to the course you are teaching for spring so you can easily submit your book requests.
