What is Textbook Rental?
Textbook Rental is simple! Now at your campus bookstore, you can rent the textbooks you need for the semester, then return them at the end of the term.
How much do I save with Textbook Rental?
Renting textbooks saves you on average 50% when compared to a new, printed textbook.
How do I pay for my Textbook Rental?
Most forms of payment currently accepted at the bookstore can also be used for rentals. We do require a credit card be kept on file, even if you pay with a different method. Why? Just in case you win the lottery and forget to return your book, we’ll need to charge you for it (refer to section on Fees).
Why do you need a credit card if I am paying for the rental some other way?
If the textbook is returned after the due date, or is damaged, we use the credit card on file to pay for a replacement book and processing fee, as described in your Rental Agreement. We want you to bring the book back so we don’t have to charge you!
If my bookstore accepts financial aid, can I use it to pay for a Textbook Rental?
Yes, you can use your financial aid to pay for your Textbook Rental. However, you will still need to keep a credit card on file with us in order to rent a book.
How long is the rental period?
The rental period begins the day you pay for the Textbook Rental and continues until the the last day of Finals, as shown on your Order Confirmation. All rented textbooks must be returned to the bookstore, in good condition, by the Rental Return Due Date. Textbook Rentals returned via mail must be postmarked by the Rental Return Due Date.
