Why are adoptions important?

  • It's the law. HEOA, the federal mandate, requires text information be available to the student for their review at enrollment time.
  • It helps our students. Making the text and educational material requirements for each course available to the students, we allow students to know ahead of enrollment time the costs of their text and course materials will be when they enroll in a specific course, your course.

Who is responsible?

  • You, the instructor, are responsible to provide accurate information to the Campus Store by the due date using the inSite method. You are responsible for providing accurate information that matches the texts listed in your syllabus.
  • The Campus Store Text Manager and Director are responsible for providing training to you so that you can complete and submit your adoptions through the inSite method. We are also responsible to ensure your adoption is available on the Campus Store website for the student to view, prior to enrollment. We will alert you if a new edition or a suitable alternative is available, or if we encounter difficulties obtaining the text that you have adopted.
  • The Office of the Registrar is responsible for providing a current and updated list of courses and faculty members assigned to those courses. However, if you are not listed, or listed incorrectly, we'll help you sort it out.
