Who will be required to follow “Changes to Textbooks for Worldwide Courses” as communicated by Dr. Nastanski?  All Instructors teaching for Saint Leo Worldwide. (Online, Centers, VTT, Blended, and ICC)


What term do we begin following the new directive? 2017SU2


Where will the students order course materials 2017SU2?

  • Online students will order from the Online Learning Textbook list.
  • Center On-ground course sections will be listed on the Saint Leo World Wide textbook list.
  • VTT and ICC will continue to have a separate textbook list and will use the same materials as Online and Saint Leo Worldwide locations.


One of the main reasons we have decided to move to this model is so that students can easily transition to another section of a course if the one they are enrolled in is cancelled.  (Example if a Center on ground class cancels they can enroll in the online course without having to return/reorder course materials.)

We believe this will aid with retention, eliminate course material errors, and help reduce the cost of the course materials.  With increases in sales numbers we will receive better volume discounts from the bookstores and we pass those savings on to students.
