In an effort to help control textbook costs for students, Congress approved the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. As a result, A&M-CC has moved forward with a procedure for early textbook adoptions as a way to increase compliance with federal expectations. The intent is to encourage all the involved parties – faculty, students, administrators, bookstores, publishers, and distributors – to work together to decrease the cost of college textbooks and supplemental materials while maintaining academic freedom and high-quality course materials.
Campus Store, in close cooperation with the Office of the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, manages this course material information. In order to be compliant, all textbooks and course material selections must be visible to students at least 30 days before the start of the semester.
The deadline for textbook adoptions is two weeks prior to the release of the course schedule available for students to preview.
Follett Discover allows you to easily discover, research, and adopt course materials all in one place.
All courses (including labs, recitations, and practica) require a textbook adoption submission, even if your course(s) do not require a textbook or you plan to use the same textbook from a previous semester.
If you have questions about textbook adoptions, please contact Lauren Berger, Campus Store, at email@example.com or 361-825-2603.
