UGA FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION ANNOUNCEMENT OF HEOA REQUIREMENTS
The new requirements of the Higher Education Opportunity and Affordability Act (HEOA) that took effect on July 1, 2010 place a greater emphasis on effective communication between academic departments and campus bookstores. That’s because the legislation compels everyone involved in the selection, purchase, sale and use of course materials to work together to reduce their cost and increase access to students.
Textbook ISBN numbers and prices must now be listed within the online course schedule. At the University of Georgia, the Bookstore, EITS and Registrar’s Office have implemented a solution to meet this requirement. However, it will only work with timely submission of all course material information from faculty members to the Bookstore for inclusion in the course schedule.
