A new federal act, effective July 2010, requires college campuses to have course material information available for students at the time they register for classes. Student registration begins Dec. 6.
The earlier a book order is turned in, the better chance the Bookstore has of buying books from students at the end of the semester. Buyback dates for the end of the Fall semester are Dec. 6-20.
