Textbook Authorization Form

Textbook Authorization Forms are used by University of Texas at Austin Faculty to request the approval of the use of a textbook, notebook or manual, etc., which the Faculty member contributed to or wrote for sale to and use by students.

Textbook Authorization forms should meet the following requirements:

  • Approval of the dean and the department chair, if applicable.
  • Cost to student should not result in the Faculty profit of more than 25% per volume.
