The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008 requires that faculty make syllabus and textbook information available in time for registration, and that's earlier than "first day of class". It applies to all undergrad, grad, professional schools receiving Federal financial assistance.

It is my gut instinct this is not a good no policy to have especially in regards to students who have ADA accommodations and needs (as well as for economic justice reasons where students are needing to make decisions about what books to buy at what times during the term). Do you have your own policies, guidelines you could share? I do serve a graduate only institution, but I’d be open to any policies/ideas!
