STUDENTS GET MORE AFFORDABLE OPTIONS WITH EARLY TEXTBOOK ADOPTIONS
Houston, November 15, 2011 Students can save money when textbooks are selected early for
courses before the start of the new semester. The UH Bookstore is working to collect all textbook
adoptions for courses in order to provide affordable options for students and comply with the
federal Higher Education Opportunity Act.
When textbook commitments are provided early, the UH Bookstore has enough time to order all
available options for that book, whether new, used, digital or rental, before the start of the
semester. Students can also see what textbooks and materials will be needed before they sign up
for a course. Also, if a textbook will be used the following semester, the student can receive up to
50 percent of the original selling price for the buyback.
A textbook provision was added to the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) in July 2010
that included stipulations on textbook assignments in order to help students know the textbook
