When are my textbook rentals due back to the bookstore?
The deadline to return all rental textbooks is the last day of finals. Students will receive email reminders about the rental deadline to their email address.

Yes, the program provides you with the option to purchase textbooks at a reduced rate during the return period.
Do I need to return rental books if they are for a continuation course?
Yes, you will still be required to return continuation course textbooks. You will be issued the same title for the next semester of the continuation course.
What happens if I never verify my order?
Students will receive emails and phone calls from the bookstore to remind them to verify their order. Their materials will be held at the bookstore.
What happens if I never pickup my books?
They will be returned to the bookstore.
What if I drop a class?
You return the book to the bookstore on the same terms and timelines currently in place. If you drop a class and enroll in a different class, the bookstore will “swap” the required textbooks/codes so that you have what you need. Contact the bookstore for shipping label if needed.
Registering for a class with digital materials after class start date?
You should have access to those materials by 8am the following morning.
Registering for a class with physical or any materials that are not delivered through the LMS after the class start date?
It can take up to 36 hours for you to receive a selection email to order the materials. If you are an online student and the materials have to be shipped to you allow for that timing also.
