What do you need to rent?

A credit/debit card (in student's name) or a Financial Aid account is required to secure rentals. Student ID number and current cell phone number must also be provided. If you do not return the book, it will be charged to the credit card or Financial Aid account used to secure the rental.

  • No water/liquid damage.
  • No writing and minimal highlighting.
  • Students will be charged the replacement cost of books returned that are damaged or past the rental return due date (also subject to late fees). A hold will be put on a student's account until charges are paid.

All rented books should have a barcode rental sticker on the back that says 'DO NOT REMOVE'.
