Higher Education Opportunities Act (HEOA)
Textbook Information Provision
In August 2008, the Higher Education Opportunities Act (HEOA) was signed into federal law. There are a number of HEOA provisions that impact WWCC. Complying with the HEOA requirements is a condition for WWCC receiving student financial aid from the Federal government.
The Textbook Information section in the HEOA defines requirements for campuses to implement new practices that provide students access to information about textbook and course materials associated with the individual WWCC classes scheduled for each semester/quarter.
On top of HEOA, Washington State signed into law HB1375 further defining campus and instructor requirements.
