Trojan Textbook Program

Getting Your Textbooks Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

Anderson University partners with eCampus to deliver textbooks and accompanying software automatically to undergraduate students. It’s called the Trojan Textbook Program.

Once enrolled in classes, materials are automatically and conveniently accessible to students. In other words, all you need to do is enroll in class–your text materials will be waiting for you.

What is the Trojan Textbook Program?

The Trojan Textbook Program is an Anderson University initiative to make course materials more affordable to its students. Through the program, the cost of textbooks and accompanying class software is included in a student’s tuition.

The Trojan Textbook Program reduces the cost of course materials and makes accessing them more convenient, thereby setting students up for academic success from day one.
