Rental Program

The LCCC Bookstore is proud save students money with our Rental Plus Program!  All rental books are for the duration of the current semester. Rentals offer students another option to save money on their textbook costs by providing immediate upfront savings. Students who rent books are required to have a debit/credit card placed on file as collateral for their rental book.  In the event the book is turned into the bookstore past the due date a $10 late fee per book will be accessed to the card on file.  Students opting to rent will complete a Rental Agreement during the online checkout process.  The last date to receive a refund for a rental textbook follows the same return policy as purchased materials.
