Renting Your Textbooks!
To see if your textbook will be available for rent, check out the textbook listing on this site under "Textbooks". If it is available for rental it will have the rental price listed under the book along with the new price. Some books will never be added to the rental option, such as workbooks, study guides, solution manuals, and lab manuals. Textbooks that are used for two semesters or more (Such as in our Nursing Program) will also not be offered as it would be more economical for you to purchase that textbook. Textbooks associated with classes that require frequent new editions such as computer classes and coding classes will not be available in the rental program. Textbooks that come in bundles with access codes will not be offered as a rental because of the high cost of separate access codes. And some textbooks will not be offered as rentals because the faculty many feel that it is important to your program that you keep that textbook for reference.
When you rent a textbook from MSC Bookstore you are agreeing that you will be responsible for the full replacement cost of that textbook if it is not returned on time and in good condition. You may lightly highlight in the rental book. But if the textbook shows any water damage, ripped cover or pages, missing pages, etc. you will be charged the replacement cost of the textbook. Unreturned or damaged book fees will restrict future registration, transcripts, and graduation.
All rental books are due back to the MSC Bookstore by Noon on Monday of the week following final exams. Outstanding rentals will be sent to collections 30 days from the due date. These rental books have no buyback value.
