Renting Books

Overview

eCampus.com is proudly offering a book rental program, referred to as "The Rent and Return Program." The Rent and Return Program by eCampus.com is a low cost alternative to purchasing textbooks. You don't own the book, you are simply borrowing it from eCampus.com for a fee and returning it to us at the end of the rental term you selected. This program was created to give our customers yet another great option when it comes to obtaining their school textbooks via our site. With thousands of new textbooks, used textbooks, eTextbooks and now rental textbooks, you are sure to find the option that best fits your needs. If a book is available for rental, the option to add this selection to your cart will appear on the right side of the book detail page in addition to new, used, Marketplace and eBooks.

How To Rent
