Textbook Adoption Dates

On time adoptions mean more used books available for students AND more money in students’ pockets through buyback. Please submit textbook/course material adoptions to the UMW Bookstore by the due dates so that the store can maximize payment to students for books they wish to sell.

*In the event of a tie, funds will be divided.
