|Reduce the price of textbooks today|
Spring textbook requests are due Oct. 13. Submit your adoptions online at und.bncollege.com then select the Faculty Tab or call 777-2748.
Providing your course and book information early allows us to pay students who choose to sell their unwanted books 50 percent of the book price at buyback.
Recycle and reuse -- the more books we buy at the end of this fall term, the more students save next term. Used books are 25 percent off the new book price.
If you adopt the text alone, (instead of a textbook package or bundle), more students actually buy it. Recent studies conducted by Student Monitor indicate that 77 percent of students would choose to purchase the text alone if given the option.
With early information, we can notify you of publisher stock situations, edition changes, and out-of-print titles.
Any custom course pack materials should be submitted as soon as possible, or by Nov. 15 to ensure enough time for copyright, production, and receiving. For additional information please contact Carolyn Homstead at 777-2748.
Thank you for all your help and support in the past. With your help we are winning the battle at maintaining and reducing the cost of textbooks by offering more used books to our students and handing back more money at the end of the term during buyback. This past year we gave students $798,491, which was a 14 percent increase over the year before. This has only been possible because of your concern and support by turning in textbook requests as early as possible.
Thank you for continued support. -- Michelle Abernathey, 777-2103; Tina Monette, 777-2106; Carolyn Homstead, 777-2748.
