Academic Materials Services for Faculty
HEOA RequirementsUnder the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requirements, The Cornell Store displays course materials information for all courses, including courses that will not be using course materials. To submit your course materials information, please view ordering instructions below.
Order Textbooks and Course MaterialsProfessors will receive a customized link via email from The Cornell Store to submit textbook and course material orders (adoptions) online. The Cornell Store uses order collection software from Verba, which provides the most seamless and ease-of-use instructor experience.
Please submit your textbook and course materials orders as soon as you receive your Verba email request. Doing so helps The Cornell Store have time to obtain more used books and offer lower prices, rental options, and digital options for our students.
Link to request a customized email
We do request that course materials orders are submitted by the following schedule:
- For fall courses, orders should be submitted by mid-June.
- For spring courses, orders should be submitted by mid-November.
- Summer and winter term courses, orders must be submitted at least 30 days before the course start.
Order Custom Course Packs
Please submit your custom course packet orders at least 2 months before the upcoming term to ensure that they will be available in the store by the first day of classes. We will accept custom course pack orders outside this production timeline (e.g. up until the course start date), but cannot guarantee availability by the first day of classes due to necessary processing and printing time.
