Rental Books FAQ

CSUF Students typically save up to 88% by renting books versus buying new. There is no limit to the number of books we can rent.

Most titles become available several weeks before classes begin. We continue to add titles as the start of classes approach, so be sure to check back regularly. All rental books are due back to Titan Shops or Irvine Center bookstore by the Friday of finals week.

Books may be rented online or in-store provided the student is currently enrolled at CSUF and possesses a valid campus wide ID. Note: A credit card is required to secure the rental for the duration of the semester. The card must not expire before the rental due date.

The rental agreement can be viewed here and during checkout. Late fees will apply if you are unable to return your books on time.

If books are returned after the deadline, late fees will apply. If you wish to keep your books, simply visit Titan Shops or the Irvine Center bookstore by the due date and pay the books' remaining balance.

It is okay to highlight, however, markings should be minimal.
