Textbook submission process to change
Beginning with courses scheduled for fall, 2011, UNI will take a different approach to collecting and sharing information about the textbooks required for courses. The federal Higher Education Opportunity Act (PL110-315) now requires that universities provide students with textbook information at the time the student registers for the course. So, our new SIS is being configured so that textbook information will be submitted directly into the system at the same time that class information is submitted. The bookstore will access information about your textbook needs from SIS rather than from you directly. If bookstore staff have questions, they will contact you directly.
If it is not possible to provide the textbook information at the requested time, we can list "to be determined" in place of the information, but wholesale use of "to be determined" will not satisfy the requirements of the law.
