Edison State Community College Textbook Selection Policy
Ohio Revised Code
Sec. 3345.025. The board of trustees of each state institution of higher education as defined in section 3345.011 of the Revised Code shall adopt a textbook selection policy for faculty to follow in selecting and assigning textbooks and other instructional materials for use in courses offered by the institution. The policy shall include faculty responsibilities and actions faculty may take in selecting and assigning textbooks and other instructional materials.
In response to the above law, Edison State Community College adopts the following guidelines for faculty to follow in selecting textbooks and other instructional materials for all credit-bearing courses. The goal of this policy is to encourage the use of high-quality instructional materials while maintaining the lowest cost possible for students. Faculty should make every effort to do the following when selecting textbooks and instructional materials for each course:
Ohio House Bill 110, Section 733.20
The Ohio General Assembly enacted uncodified law section 733.20 in HB 110 of the 134th session on June 30, 2021. This section states that in furtherance of the State of Ohio’s intent to improve affordability in higher education, the State of Ohio is tasking state institutions of higher education with evaluating textbook affordability initiatives to ensure compliance with Title I, Section 133 of the federal “Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008,” which requires institutions to “disclose required and recommended textbooks not later than the time at which students can first begin to register for a course.”
As a result of enactment of Section 733.20 of HB 110, each state institution of higher education is now required to convene the institution’s faculty senate, or equivalent body, to consider adoption of a formally recognized textbook auto-adoption policy. A textbook auto-adoption policy, if adopted, states that if textbooks and course materials are not selected by the first day of class registration, then the faculty member is deemed to have selected identical materials from the prior semester offering of the course. This applies to the same edition of the textbook, not simply the same title.
In response to the above law, Edison State Community College adopts the following policy regarding textbook selection:
If textbooks and/or course materials are not selected by the first day of class registration, then the faculty member is deemed to have selected identical materials from the prior semester offering of the course. This applies to the same edition of the textbook, not simply the same title.
