Rental FAQ: 

  • What is a Textbook Rental?: At the CCM Campus Store, most of our textbooks are available to rent. A Textbook Rental at CCM is valid for one full semester. A textbook rental may be a used or new book depending on availability. Rentals give our students a flexibility to have the course materials at up to 80% off of the list price of the book! 
  • How Do Rentals Work?:  Renting means you pay only a fraction of the cost of the book up front and then return the book at the end of the semester.  No need to rely on end-of-semester buyback prices!  You know what you are saving from the beginning.  By renting through the CCM Campus Store, you are guaranteed to have your materials for the correct amount of time needed for your courses on campus or online. If you decide to keep the book, just pay the difference by the end of the semester.
  • Are there Late Fees? If I have Late Fees, How do I pay them?: In the event that a book is not returned on time, a $10 late fee per book is placed on your student account or charged to your credit card. With any fees, a hold is placed on yuour account as well.  In the event that books are not returned or are damaged, your account or card will be charged for the remaining balance of each book not returned (the difference between the rental and selling price). 
  • Rental Return Directions Fall 2020:
