Submitting Course Materials Requisitions

Attn. Faculty: Students will be registering for Students will be registering for Summer I, II and Fall 2021 classes shortly. It is imperative that you submit your course material requisitions no later than Friday April 16, 2021.

Please keep in mind that the later you submit your order, the more difficult it will be for our course material provider, Barnes & Noble College, to source and secure your course materials in time for the start of the semester. Timely submission helps the bookstore determine the value of the books being used in the next semester. This will guide them as to the value of the books, and offer the students more at buy back time. Students will save money if more used books are available. If you will be teaching a course during the upcoming semester(s) and require books or supplies for your class(es), please remember to submit your order as soon as possible.

Shop Red has launched the new Adoptions Insight Portal (AIP), to assist faculty and staff with easily managing and submitting course materials each term. AIP was developed by Barnes & Noble College to solve challenges faced by faculty in the areas of discovering, selecting, and monitoring course material adoptions. With 24/7 customer service and personalized course lists, AIP offers a streamlined experience for faculty. Users received an email with additional information. Preview the Adoptions & Insights Portal below.
