The following ordering cycles have been adopted by the campus and are included in the Textbook Services Policy.  These due dates allow adequate time for discussions with faculty, communications with publishers, and for processing, ordering and shipping of textbooks. In addition, these established dates guarantee that UW-La Crosse is compliant with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA).  The HEOA requires that all students be provided with information regarding the cost of the textbooks they must purchase prior to registering for classes.
