DCTC Bookstore Textbook Rentals Program
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.
As mentioned above, the biggest advantage to renting textbooks is the lower cost to the student.
What are the disadvantages?
You must remember to return all rented textbooks.
Books must be returned in resalable condition.
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. Rented books remain the property of the DCTC Bookstore while you use them.
How to Rent Titles In-Store:
Bring your Student ID Card with you, along with your class schedule.
Find your books. Verify that the book(s) you want are available to rent. Remember that only certain titles are available to rent as part of this program.

At the end of the semester, during finals week, simply return the title(s) to the Bookstore.
