Textbook Adoption for UF Faculty and Staff



Information on deadlines and policy will be listed here and will change periodically.

  • The textbook adoption system for is now available to faculty and departments to submit their textbook adoptions and materials requirements for the Spring 2020 academic term.

    In order to facilitate timely ordering of materials by the UF Bookstore, please submit adoptions, by October 28, 2019.

    The deadline for Spring 2020 adoptions is November 22, 2019 or compliance with Florida Statutes.

    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.
