By meeting textbook ordering deadline, faculty helping students
Auxiliary Services, with the support of the
Office of the Provost, is encouraging all faculty members to
submit their summer and fall textbook orders to the UH Bookstore
by March 22.
Meeting this deadline helps University of Houston students in
• By knowing if a textbook will be used again next semester, the
UH Bookstore can offer current students higher buy-back prices.
• It also gives the bookstore more time to shop around and find
the best prices and options for used, rental and digital
textbooks. Before enrolling in summer and fall classes, students
will be able to access textbook pricing information for their
courses, giving them more time to prepare for their financial
responsibility to UH.
• Students can use their financial aid, book loan or scholarship
funds on textbook purchases at the UH Bookstore, whereas they
may not be able to do so at other stores. The bookstore supports
UH students with textbook scholarships awarded each term, and it
is the university’s designated provider for textbooks.
By submitting their orders early, faculty members are also
ensuring that UH is complying with Texas House Bill 33 and the
federal Higher Education Opportunity Act.
