Rental Book Insurance

Accidental damage protection for just $5


Here's How it Works

  1. Rent your textbooks in-store.
  2. Notify the cashier the number of insurance units you wish to purchase. Note: If you rent more than one title, one insurance unit can be applied to any one of those titles.
  3. If something happens to your books, you're covered. Simply bring back the damaged book to Customer Service at the end of the semester and skip the replacement fee.

Rental insurance only applies to accidental damage. Please review the program guidelines below.
