No Textbooks or Resources Reported for Spring 2022

Herky Hawk:

You are receiving this email because the following spring 2022 course(s) do not have textbooks and/or resources reported:


Departmental Administrators received a similar message the week of November 4. Contact the bookstore if you or the instructor placed textbook and/or resource orders before today for one or more of the courses listed above. Iowa Hawk Shop's contact information is listed below.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requires that book titles, ISBNs, and prices of required and recommended books and other materials for any course are included on the institution's electronic schedule of courses in time for student registration.

As a reminder, textbook orders are not replicated and thus require a new order to be placed each semester.

To learn more about textbook compliance and policy, please visit the Office of the Registrar website.


Some departments utilize administrative staff to collect and place textbook orders for instructors. Others ask instructors to place their own orders. Those decisions continue to be made by the department.

The Office of the Provost encourages instructors to place their textbook order by Early Registration with either the Iowa Hawk Shop/University Bookstore, ICON Direct, or the ISBA Law Bookstore as the result of an electronic data upload process. 

Spring Deadlines

All textbook and resource orders should be finalized in MAUI by Early Registration (November 8, 2021), but in no event later than four weeks prior to the start of the semester (December 21, 2021) in which the textbook is to be used by students.

While the Early Registration deadline has passed, there is still time to place your orders.
