- Renting a textbook offers an immediate savings of up to 40% off the shelf price.
- Rentals are on a per semester basis. Prices to rent are the same whether you need them for the whole semester or not.
- While the bookstore is adding more textbooks to the rental program each semester, the list does not include every book the bookstore sells. The majority of titles available for rent are those used in General Studies.
Textbook rental procedure
When you purchase your textbooks, you will be given the option to rent your textbook if it is available to rent. At this time you will read the rental agreement and inspect your textbooks for any damage.
You will then return your textbooks on or before the due date stated on your rental agreement. If you do not return it before the due date you will be charged a $15 late fee for the first week after the due date. After the one week grace period the textbook is yours and you will be charged a replacement fee.
If your rental textbook is damaged you will be charged a replacement fee equal to the used price of the textbook, plus any late fees if applicable. At this point the textbook is your property.
All rental textbooks are subject to our Return Policy. Textbook rental fees will be assessed to the student on a per book basis.
