Nearly all courses require a textbook. Print-based courses usually require a study guide as well. Some courses also require calculators, videos, or audio materials.
The Office of Distance and Extended Learning supplies a student who enrolls in a print-based course with a study guide upon enrollment. Textbooks and other course materials can be purchased from the Texas State University Bookstore
or an online vendor of the student's choice, such as Amazon.com
, or Half.com
, or from a brick-and-mortar bookstore. When purchasing required materials for a course, be sure to purchase the correct edition of the material and to verify that the material's International Standard Book Number (ISBN) matches that listed on the course website
Should you require any assistance in locating course materials, please call the Office of Distance and Extended Learning at 512.245.2322.
Please keep in mind that all materials should be purchased within 30 days of enrollment; after 30 days, materials may no longer be available for your course.
