May 4 - To students: Returning rental textbooks

With the end of the spring semester approaching, the bookstore is providing instructions for returning rental textbooks. There are two ways to access and print a free return label and packing slip.

  • Reminder emails: You can access a shipping label from any of the three reminder emails that will be sent to the email address you provided when you created your rental account. Reminder emails will be sent May 4, 11 and 15. Each email will include a customer rental list and a link to print a free FedEx return shipping label and packing slip.
  • Rental account: You can also access a shipping label through your rental account on the bookstore website. Click “Sign In” in the top right corner of the homepage and enter the email address and password you used to create the rental account. Once you are signed in, click “Rentals” to continue to the rentals page. Scroll down to see the rented titles list. Click “Return by Mail,” which will open a pop-up to select the individual titles to be returned. Follow the steps to generate and print the return label and packing list.

Rentals are due by Monday, May 18. There is a 15-day grace period that ends Tuesday, June 2 to allow more time for in-transit returns to be checked in before non-return collateral charges are processed. Please note: Free shipping labels will only be available through June 2.

Selling purchased textbooks: You can also sell your purchased textbooks online through the bookstore’s textbook buying partner ValoreBooks. Visit the bookstore website and click “Sell Your Textbooks” at the bottom of the page. This will bring you to the ValoreBooks website. Enter the ISBN of the book you would like to sell in the white box to receive a quote, then follow the directions to complete the sale.
