Why rent with your bookstore?

So far students have saved over $300 million with Rent-A-Text, the largest in-store and online rental program in the country brought to you by Follett. Here's a few reasons why students and faculty love us:

  • Guaranteed to get the right book for class
  • Free in-store pickup where available. Check your bookstore for details.
  • Multiple forms of payment including financial aid and campus cards where available. Check your bookstore for details.
  • Use the book like you normally would - highlight and take notes.

How to Rent

Click "Textbooks & Course Materials" on you bookstore efollett page to begin. If your book is available for rent you'll be prompted to register before you can complete your order. Upon completing registration, you'll be directed back to your bookstore shopping cart to complete your purchase.


When to Check-In?

Rentals must be returned to the bookstore by the return date on your receipt (or confirmation email) to avoid any additional charges. We'll also send reminder emails toward the end of your term (to the email address you've provided during registration) to help you remember when to bring your rented books back.
