Rental+ Program

Try before you buy! You can apply the rental price you paid to the purchase price to keep the book.

Drop or switch classes? You have a week after classes start to return your rentals to receive a full refund.

You can return your rentals in-store at the end of each semester, use our contact-less Drop-Off Box, or you can simply mail them back to The Fisk Bookstore.
Order online and pick between Shipping to your house or Campus Drop-Off!
Feel secure knowing that you've got the right materials for your course for the entire semester.

I like to buy my books instead of renting because I may need to keep them.  Why should I rent?
The Fisk Bookstore has a Rental+ Program, meaning the full rental price paid can be applied to the purchase price at the end of the semester if you want to keep your book. 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.
Can I rent books or packages with an access code in them?
Yes, the rental price includes the purchase of the access code, and the book will need to be returned at the end of the semester.
Can I write or highlight in my rental?
Yes, normal use of writing/highlighting in the book is allowed. Excessive highlighting or writing can result in the rental being deemed damaged.  Rentals that are damaged upon return are subject to a damage fee.
Why do I need to hold a debit/credit card on file for a rental?
We require a debit/credit card to be used as collateral in case the rental is not returned.
