The University of Texas has partnered with the Co-op to ensure compliance with the federal law, HEOA & HB33. The Co-op collects the course material requirements for all UT courses and makes the information available to the students by way of the UT registration website or the Co-op website.
The list is also freely available to competing bookstores. The federal law requires this information to be visible to students at least 30 days prior to classes beginning every semester. The earlier we receive your adoption the better, this allows us to offer better buy back prices to your students, or to find better sourcing on the market - lowering costs to your students!
The deadline for summer semester adoptions is April 15th
The deadline for non-LTA fall semester adoptions is May 15th
The deadline for fall Longhorn Textbook Access (LTA) adoptions is July 1st
The deadline for non-LTA spring semester adoptions is October 31st

• List materials for any cross-listed courses.
• Advise us of any special timing for your course so we can have the books on time.
