Book Adoption

Please submit your orders at your earliest convenience.  Ordering your textbooks through the Campus Stores directly helps students and is required by Section 133 of the Higher Educational Opportunity Act. 

  • Early orders help our textbook buyers build up a used book inventory, saving our students money.
  • Some scholarship programs and other special programs require that students purchase their textbooks at the bookstore.  Early textbook orders help these students to be able to buy their books earlier to be more prepared for class.
  • The Campus Stores are the official bookstores for UTRGV and are the official designees for collecting adoptions.  Any adoptions collected are provided to off campus bookstore operators upon request in compliance with the Public Information Act.

For added convenience, we encourage you to use Follett Discover for your textbook adoptions. Highlights of this new technology suite include a transformation of course material adoptions through the Faculty Discover tool, which includes tools that enable instructors to explore a vast source of course materials including text book offerings, open educational resources and more. The book adoption process has been streamlined eliminating the paperwork and guesswork associated with submitting traditional adoptions. The Faculty Discover tool will be available to instructors within the Blackboard LMS, therefore, assisting in timely submission of book adoptions.
