•   CSU’s Affordable Learning Solutions program is in response to HEOA of 2008
     – Complying with the HEOA requirements is a condition for the CSU receiving student financial
       aid from the Federal government.
•   Purpose of the HEOA
     – “…To ensure that student have access to affordable course materials by decreasing costs to
       students and enhancing transparency and disclosure with respect to the selection, purchase,
       sale, and use of course materials.
          •   Publishers must disclose price and revision information to faculty
          •   Publishers must offer the parts of all bundled textbooks for sale separately
          •   colleges must list assigned texts during registration
•   What else do we have to disclose?
     – “An institution… is encouraged to disseminate to students information regarding
          •   Availability of institutional programs for renting textbooks or purchasing used textbooks
          •   Availability of institutional guaranteed textbook buy-back programs
          •   Availability of alternative content delivery programs; or
          •   Other available institutional cost-savings strategies”
