Rent Textbooks

​You have another option to save money on textbook costs — by renting textbooks instead of buying them.

Here are some of the benefits of Rent-a-Text, designed by the Follett Higher Education Group:

  • You’ll save money.  
  • You can highlight and take notes in books you rent.
  • You can purchase the books any time during the semester — it's up to you.
  • You can rent in campus bookstores or online. Order books online, pick them up at the bookstore and later return them to any colleges of DCCCD bookstore.

Not all course materials will be available through the rental program, including consumable, single-use materials, such as workbooks; bundles and packages that contain consumables that are not available separately; loose-leaf and other unbound materials; materials not durable enough for multiple use; and editions at the end of their lives.
