Submitting adoption information on time is crucial to contributing to course materials affordability for our students.

The earlier adoptions are received by the campus store, the more time we have to perform in-depth sourcing for used and rental inventory. This in turn can translate to significant savings for your students, which is why on-time submissions are so important!
