TIP (Textbook Information Provisioning)

TIP is the system for submitting recommended and required course reading information to meet the federal mandate set out in the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, which requires faculty to divulge all materials that students must purchase for a course by pre-registration (pre-registration deadlines are mid-June for Fall and the end of December for spring; for exact dates see the Institute's Academic Calendar).

What you need to do

The text material ordering process now takes place through the Coop's Course Materials Adoption System. For each class you are teaching, you or your administrative assistant need to complete a form to

  • request textbooks or course materials OR
  • indicate that you will have no textbooks/course materials for the term.

Note: You *must* complete a form for BOTH subject numbers of a meets‐with subject, e.g. 4.432 AND 4.433.
