DCTC Bookstore Textbook Rental Program

Rental books are great options for students looking to save money on course materials. Rented book program can save students up to 75% when compared to the price of brand new textbooks.

Why Rent?

The biggest advantage to renting textbooks is the lower cost to the student.

What are the disadvantages?
