Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA)
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) is a federal law that requires all colleges and universities in the United States that participate in the Title IV federal student aid programs to feature course material pricing and ISBN numbers for required and recommended texts to students either before or by the time of class registration. According to the official HEOA website:
"In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), by October 29, 2011, each postsecondary institution in the United States that participates in Title IV student aid programs must post a net price calculator on its Web site that uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to current and prospective students and their families based on a student's individual circumstances."
Compliance with this law affects the amount of Federal student aid to Stony Brook University.
Faculty members who are assigned to a course must submit their course book information by the designated due dates: April 5 for Summer & Fall semesters and October 12 for Winter & Spring semesters.
