When you view the booklist you have the option to rent selected new and used, along with buying new and used books on selected titles for a term. Renting a new book will cost more than renting a used book.
By providing us with your email address and/or phone number you will receive alerts concerning the rental return due date.
Check the booklist for books that are available for rental then fill out the form below for each book that you would like to rent. The bookstore staff will contact you within 48 business hours to confirm your rental is available. If the book is available we will hold it for 24 hours after you have been notified. When you pick-up your book you will sign a copy of the agreement and also pay for your book, if you are not charging your book rental to your financial aid.
Can I charge the rental to my financial aid?
Yes, you can use your financial aid to pay the rental fee.
Can I get a refund on a rented book if I decide I don’t want it or if I drop the class?
Yes. Refunds for rented textbooks will be treated in the same manner as refunds for purchased textbooks. Refunds are allowed through the first week of class. Please check the website for exact dates. New rental books must still be in new condition for a full refund. Receipts are required forb ALL refunds.
Can I use a highlighter in my rental books?
Minimal highlighting and marking is allowed. If marks are excessive (more than a few pages) you will be charged the difference between the rental and purchase prices.
What if I decide I want to keep a rented book?
Great! All you need to do is bring the book back by the close of business on the last day of final exams and we will charge you the difference between the rental and purchase price of the new or used book you rented.
Why isn’t the book for my class available for rent?
Not all classes will have rental books available, in addition the rental program is new and we are working on adding more titles each term.
