Fall 2019 Textbook rentals were due in the store by the end of business on Wednesday, December 18. If you still have books out, please call us and ask for textbooks at 252.758.2616.
Here at UBE, we're proud of our self-funded rental program, one of the largest private and self-funded rental textbook programs in the country, and it's supplemented by rental partnership programs with the top three textbook wholesale companies in the business, along with publisher rental programs from both Pearson Education and McGraw Hill. So how does textbook rental work?
You pick out your textbooks from our shelves, and if a title is available for rent, our price cards will give four prices (new purchase, used purchase, new rental and used rental) instead of two. Tell your cashier you want to rent certain titles. We'll put your credit card on file, in case you don't turn it in at the end of the semester, and you'll pocket the savings up front (though at the end of the semester, you'll have to give us the book back, and you won't be able to sell it to us). If you don't turn it in at the end of the semester, we'll charge you for the new purchase price, less any rental fees already paid, using the card you put on file with us at the beginning of the semester.
Now you can rent your textbooks online!
