Prompt submission of textbook adoptions by faculty each semester enables the Campus Store to stock books in a timely manner and increases the chances of offering used textbooks, eBooks and rental textbooks, all of which help students save up to 50 percent off of new book prices. The Campus Store relies heavily on your timely response, so please don’t delay.
Final textbook adoptions for summer and fall 2018 semesters are due on March 16 and April 6, respectively.

Inclusive Access puts your textbooks and related study materials online, making them available anytime, anywhere, and on the first day of class. Any course is eligible for Inclusive Access and the fee is paid along with class registration, eliminating the need to search for and purchase textbooks independently.
Last semester, 2,500 students utilized Inclusive Access and each saved an average of 60 percent on their course materials. Students can conveniently view their textbooks online, track their progress from assignment to assignment and communicate with other students in their class. Professors can also communicate with students, as well as provide updates and announcements and monitor the access and progress of each student.
Join the 21 courses already using Inclusive Access by contacting Shane Girton, senior associate director of the Campus Store, at email@example.com or 801-581-8296. Informational luncheons will be held in March to orient faculty on how the program works and answer any questions you may have. If you are interested in attending, please contact Girton who will provide you with the details.
Hit the ground running on day one next semester and help your students save money through Inclusive Access.
