Q: How long do I have to use my Book Voucher/Scholarship?
A: Book Vouchers and Scholarships will be able to be used on our website starting on January 15th and ending on February 28th. 
Q: I like to buy my books instead of renting because I may need them. Why should I rent?
A: We have a no-risk rental which means your full rental price can be applied to the purchase price at the end of the semester.
For example, if the rental price is $25 and the purchase price is $75, you would pay $50 to keep the book at the end of the semester.
Q: What if I end up not needing a book that I purchased for this semester?
A: You have until January 29th to return for a full refund. That gives you a chance to attend a full week of classes and decide if you need the item or not.
Q: Can I write or highlight in my rental?
A: Yes, normal use of writing/highlighting in the book is allowed. Excessive highlighting or writing can result in the rental being deemed damaged and may result in a charge for the book(s).
