How You Can Help Students Save Money

So what can you do to help ensure that your students have access to these affordable options? First, you can make sure that you get your textbook adoptions in early – typically a few weeks before finals. We share your goal of wanting students to be prepared for the first day of class, and early textbook requests enable us to find, purchase and stock the best cost-saving options available. Additionally, by researching textbook options earlier, together we will have more time to explore your rental and digital format options, ensuring that your students have access to more affordable choices.

Early adoption also helps our used textbook and Cash for Books cycle function properly. When we receive textbook adoption requests early, we can be sure to offer students cash back for those books that will be reused next semester. In turn, those books become part of our used textbook inventory, saving even more students money in the future.

Lastly, you can help your students by letting them know before classes begin that the campus store offers this range of affordable options. By directing your students to the campus store for their course material needs, we can work together to make sure that they have all the materials they need to succeed.
