DSU Bookstore: Course Material Adoptions

Trojan Zone Bookstore:  Course Material Adoptions



To ensure students have access to required course materials at competitive prices and to meet the requirements set forth by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA).  The textbook provision of the HEOA states that institutions of higher education display course material information at the time of registration.

Trojan Zone Bookstore


Available Formats:

Course materials include, but are not limited to, new textbooks, used textbooks, access codes, Ebooks, and art supplies.  The Trojan Zone also offers a textbook rental program for new and used textbooks.


Instructors are sent a link in an email from Verba Vital Source (dsu.verbasoftware.com) to submit course material adoptions approximately 2 months prior to the start of the semester.  The following information is necessary to obtain the correct print textbook or access code:

  • ISBN, Title, Author, Publisher, Publisher Date, Edition

Instructors should indicate if the textbook/access code is required, recommended or optional

Where possible, the Trojan Zone will match the print textbook adoption with an available Ebook adoption

If supplies are needed for a course (i.e. Art Courses), please send supply list to bookstore@dsu.edu


Purchasing Options:

Students have the option to purchase course materials online and in-store. 



Questions about course material adoptions should be directed to the Trojan Zone
