  • Q. Can I get a refund on a rented textbook if I decide I don't want it or drop the class?

    A: Yes, refunds for textbooks rented in-store will be treated like refunds for purchased textbooks so our standard return policy will apply. All returns must be in good condition and be accompanied with the receipt.


    Q. Why aren't some books available for rent?

    Unfortunately, not all textbooks qualify for the rental program. We are constantly working to expand the selection of rentals.


    Q. What if I forget to return the book at the end of the semester?

    A: You will be charged the replacement price of the rental textbook as listed on the sales receipt.


    Q. Can I turn in my rental book when I return for the following semester?

    A: No. You will still be charged the replacement price of the rental textbook as listed on the sales receipt when you rented your textbook.


    Q. What if my book was lost/stolen/damaged beyond normal wear?

    A: There are a few options:

    • You can come into the store and pay the difference between the rental and replacement costs.
    • If you choose to do nothing, you will be charged the replacement fee.


    Q. Are rental books used or new?

    A: They may be either but the rental price is the same in both cases.


    Q. Can I rent a book for multiple semesters?

    A: No, you must return rental books at the end of each semester. The cost of renting a book for two semesters is generally higher than purchasing a used book.


    Q. Can someone else return my books for me?

    A: No, you'll need to return your own rental books.
