  • Bureau of State Audits Report

    Bookstore Initiatives to respond to government requirements/recommendations:

  • Strengthening existing used book/buyback program

  • Guaranteed Buyback

  • Textbook Rental pilot

Review- HEOA (Higher Education Opportunity Act)

2008 Reauthorization of the Federal Higher Education Act, affects every college in the United States that receives any federal funds

  • Two provisions in Section 112 impact both the University and the Bookstore directly:

    • Requires textbook price information, including ISBN #, be posted with the online schedule of classes, or that the online schedule is linked to the bookstore’s information

    • Requires institution to provide their bookstores with all required/recommended book lists for all courses

  • These requirements go into effect starting July 1, 2010

    Intent is to create centralized information source for students to find out about textbook usage and costs.

    • Jumpbooks/CourseSmart (Access codes generated by our store POS system)

Update on status of NEW Programs

Guaranteed Buyback

  • For books that qualify, we guarantee students will get 50% of the new retail price at buyback.

  • Bookstore needs to know which books will be used the following term before students start buying books for the current term.

  • In place 3 quarters now, results hard to measure but students seem to appreciate knowing.
