Ordering deadlines for IU eTexts

On this page:


Overview

Ordering periods for the IU eTexts Order Tool begin on September 2 and February 2 every year to allow faculty to order digital course materials for upcoming terms through the IU eTexts initiative.

Ordering periods close the day before the first day of registration for each term. For specific campus deadlines by term, see the other sections of this document.

Note:
  • Faculty and coordinators will not see all classes in the IU eTexts Order Tool until all campuses, schools, departments, and programs have finished editing the Schedule of Classes for the upcoming term.
  • When an ordering period closes, the IU eTexts Order Tool is no longer available to faculty and coordinators. To place post-deadline orders, follow the procedure in Post-Deadline Ordering.

Note:

Some campuses choose to enroll students for summer during the preceding fall term instead of the spring term. At this time, the IU eTexts Order Tool and IU's publisher/vendor agreements are not capable of supporting that choice. Orders for these campuses may only be submitted during the timeline noted above. This means that if students have already enrolled, these will be considered late orders. Faculty, programs, departments, or schools must assume the responsibility to contact all enrolled students to explain the late addition of a charge for the class. UITS recommends waiting for two overnight refreshes after submitting an order before contacting the enrolled students, so you don't miss any.

An alternative and easier approach is to add a Class Note; for example:

The instructor of this class will be teaching with IU eTexts. Details of the specific title and price will be posted to the Schedule of Classes in February/March.
