For bookstore hours of operation, additional information and special promotions, please visit the Campus Bookstore website.
Renting textbooks saves an average of 50% when compared to purchasing new, printed textbooks. The bookstore currently accepts most forms of payment when paying for your rental textbook. A credit card is required to be kept on file even if another payment is used. This is used as a security deposit in case the textbook returned is damaged.
You may be eligible to use your financial aid to pay for your textbook rental if you have a credit card on your financial aid account.
The rental period for textbooks begins on the day you pay for the Textbook Rental and continues through the last day of final exams, as shown on your Order Confirmatin. All rented textbooks must be returned to the bookstore, in good condition, by the rental return due date. Textbook Retnals returned by mail must be postmarked by the rental due date.
