  • All instructors will be asked to order textbooks each semester before the start of Early Registration for the following semester so that UI complies with the HEO Act. The law does allow for some exceptions. If placing the textbooks online is “impractical,” the tag of “To be determined” may be added to the course schedule instead. However, the law also indicates that institutions (rather than each individual) defines more specifically what is considered “impractical” and when “To be determined” may be used.  At the University of Iowa, “To be determined” may be used in these circumstances:
    • If an instructor has not yet been hired
    • If the instructor has not yet been assigned to a course
    • If the course is new and still under development
    • If the textbook is new and still under development
