Verba project requires Ethos and other Banner components for student billing integration. Purchasing/IT Verba software does not yet work with the Ethos hub.  The problem is between Verba and Ellucian.  As a result, the Bookstore will user Verba but will not use the Verba API to automatically load student status data from Banner and to automatically download student payment owed data.  Verba software will use the scheduled data dump from Banner and upload to Verba for at least the Fall semester.
