Inver Hills Bookstore

Spring Term 2019 Textbook Rental Agreement


By placing an online order for rental textbooks, you are agreeing to the following:

You (the student) have entered into a rental agreement with the Inver Hills Community College Bookstore to loan you one copy of each selected rental title. Rental textbooks are the intellectual property of the author(s) and are copyrighted by the author(s) and/or publishers. Textbook rentals are not to be reproduced. The rental agreement is only effective for the current term. Per this agreement, you are responsible for the following:

 -I understand that titles I rent remain the property of the Bookstore.

 -Materials must be returned in the appropriate condition: clean, minimal highlighting and notes, and without damage.

 -All components must be returned. If a component is missing, I understand the materials are non-returnable.

-I understand I will be billed an additional cost equal to the FULL RETAIL price of the materials if any items/components are damaged or missing.

 -Materials must be returned to the bookstore on or before 2PM on Friday, May 17, 2019. 

-I understand I will be billed the full purchase price of each book PLUS a non-return fee of $25.00 per book if they are not returned by 2PM on Friday, May 17, 2019.  

(Example: FULL RETAIL=$100.00, Rental Fee=$50.00. You will be billed $100.00+$25.00=$125.00. The rental fee is NOT taken off of the bill, so your actual book cost is $175.00).

 *PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT sell your rentals at book buyback! RETURN YOUR RENTALS IN THE STORE OR AT THE BUYBACK WINDOW AT THE END OF SPRING TERM. If you sell your rental books at buyback, the book will be treated as a non-returned book.

You must enter your STAR ID (2 letters, 4 numbers, 2 letters) and not your STUDENT ID (8 numbers) to rent a title, or your rental may not be recorded properly.
