New Guidelines to Make Textbooks More Affordable for



Federal and state laws require institutions of higher learning to find ways and means to address the escalating cost of textbooks and instructional material. To this end, Montgomery College has published the Montgomery College Instructional Materials Affordability Guidelines.


By submitting an adoption, I affirm that I have read and understand the Montgomery College Instructional Materials Affordability Guidelines related to both the Maryland College Textbook Competition and Affordability Act of 2009 (Maryland Association of Community Colleges summary, text of Senate Bill 183) and the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (National Association of College Stores summary).

Before submitting an adoption for a different textbook or a new edition, please acknowledge in the "Message to Bookstore" field the following:

  1. That using the new edition is appropriate due to a substantial difference in content between the two editions as has been reported to you by the publisher. Briefly describe the change(s) between the two editions.
  2. That you are aware of the price difference between the previous and new editions as provided to you by the publisher. List the difference in cost between the two editions.
The Montgomery College Instructional Materials Affordability Guidelines are not meant to supersede, in any way, the institutional autonomy or academic freedom of faculty members involved in the selection of college textbooks and supplemental materials
