DCTC Bookstore Textbook Rentals
Rental books are great options for students looking to save money on course materials.  Our rental book program can save students up to 75% when compared to the price of brand new textbooks.
      Why Rent?
  • As mentioned above, the biggest advantage to renting textbooks is the lower cost to the student.
      What are the disadvantages?
  • Rental books must be returned the week of Finals. 
    (This is not exactly a negative, but students must remember to return the rentals on time before fees are charged.)
  • Rentals must be kept in good condition.  Meaning no excessive highlighting, writing, or damage of any kind.
      Will I get money back when I return my rental?
  • No.  Renting your textbooks offers savings up-front so there is no refund when you return your rental.
      How to Rent Titles In-Store:
  • Bring your Student ID Card with you, along with your class schedule.
  • Review and sign the DCTC Bookstore Textbook Rental Agreement with a cashier at checkout.
  • At the end of the Semester, during Finals Week, simply return the title(s) to the Bookstore.
      How to Rent Titles Online:
  • Titles with the option of being rented will be displayed when you search for your course materials.
  • Add the rental books your your cart and begin the checkout process.
  • By renting textbooks from the DCTC Bookstore online, you agree to the terms of the Textbook Rental Agreement.

Note: Books rented through DCTC Bookstore must be returned to The Bookstore.  Books rented through other vendors must be returned as per your agreement with them.  The Bookstore does NOT have access to rental records from any other vendors.

  • Students must be enrolled at DCTC and have a valid Student ID number.
  • Students must agree to the terms of the DCTC Bookstore Rental Agreement.
  • All rental transactions must be secured with a credit card.
