Why So early?

The Southwestern College Bookstore works hard to save students money on their course materials purchases by buying back books needed in the upcoming term, by searching the national market for used texts, and by working with our vendors to negotiate better prices. All these efforts take time, and none works well unless we have a substantial set of adoption information to work with. Plus, getting the routine adoptions in early gives us more time to work with late and problem adoptions. We thank you, and your students thank you, for submitting your adoption information as soon as you have made your decision.
