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 Faculty Calendar).
