Textbooks

You can also access textbook requirements at the online VSU Bookstore, where you can purchase many of them. We try to keep the list below as up to date as possible, but do not rely on the list for textbooks for future terms. It is best to check the lists as close to the start of the term of study as possible, still allowing for time to acquire the texts.
