NDSU Bookstore

Website: www.ndsubookstore.com/home.aspx
The designated provider of course material information for NDSU students. By law, the NDSU Bookstore is required to provide information on the courses offered and what materials will be used. Faculty must submit a list of all textbooks and materials required for their course, even if no textbooks are required. Course material expenses can be reduced for students when books and materials requests are turned in at least 8 weeks prior to the start of the semester. Items available through the NDSU Bookstore include:

Books and course materials are essential to our practice, so NDSU OTL and the NDSU Bookstore have put together a short video regarding how to order books and materials for the classes you are teaching.  We have also included some valuable tips below.


Tip 1: Reserve books at least eight weeks prior to the start of the semester.
Reserving your books/materials well in advance of the upcoming semester allows the NDSU Bookstore time to watch for the best deals on your books/materials. Those savings are passed on to students taking your class.

Tip 2: If you are short on time, use the Quick Adoption Form.
The Quick Adoption Form gives you the option to quickly enter your book/material information. However, you may want to choose the Faculty Login Adoption System, which remembers your textbook and material requests from previous semesters.  

Tip 3: Notify the NDSU Bookstore if you DO NOT require any books/materials for your class.
Notifying the NDSU Bookstore that you are not using any books/materials is easy.  Complete the Quick Adoption Form and check the "No Text Required" box. The bonus is you eliminate unneccesary emails requesting your textbook reservations.
