Frequently Asked Questions.

1.)               Am I allowed to write in my rental textbook?

Minimal writing and highlighting is okay (less than five pages). Heavy highlighting is distracting to other students and is not acceptable.

2.)              Can I use the access code that was included in my rental textbook?

Yes, if your rental textbook came with an access code, you are free to use it; however, you must return any supplemental CDs when you return your rental.

3.)              Will I get my money back when I turn in my rental at the end of the term?

Renting textbooks can save you between 15-45 % at the time of your initial purchase and is a good deal for people who keep their books in reasonable condition and return them by the Rental Check-in Deadline, however you are not refunded your initial cost when turning your book in at the end of the term.

4.)              What happens if I don’t return the book? Do you take all rentals back?

Students who do not return their rental textbooks by the Rental Check-in Deadline will be charged for the remainder of the textbook plus a $15 processing fee.

Rental textbooks with excessive writing or highlighting, missing, torn or loose pages, or textbooks with liquid damage are not accepted at Rental Check-in. Students with books like this will be charged for the remainder of the textbook plus a $15 processing fee.

NOTE: Please be selective when choosing used book to rent or purchase – you don’t want to pay for damage caused by someone else!

 

5.)              What if I need the book for another term?

Currently we do not have the ability to renew rentals for a second term. If you need a rental textbook for two consecutive terms, please let us know and we will help you determine if it is cheaper for you to purchase the remainder of the textbook or check-in the textbook and re-rent for the next term.
