Course Materials Requisitions


Course Materials Adoption Due Dates

Spring Semester: November 1st

Summer Semester: April 15

Fall Semester: July 1

You, the faculty, play a larger role than you might recognize in ensuring students are able to obtain the textbooks and materials they need at competitive prices. The UNM Bookstores rely on you to submit requisitions for your courses in a timely fashion each semester. Timely submissions allow us to source the correct course materials and obtain a large supply of used textbooks. We all know that more used textbooks are exactly what students want!

With your submitted requisition, we will place the title on our buyback list and pay your students the maximum dollar amount. In addition, your timely course material requisitions allow UNM to be in compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA).

On the other hand, a delayed requisition can result in students not being able to obtain required course materials, a lack of quality used textbooks & non-compliance with HEOA. Please do your part and submit your course material requisitions as early as possible each semester. Your students will thank you!
