Designated textbooks are rented for $48 each, which includes a $28 rental fee plus a $20 deposit. When the student has finished with their rental book at the end of the semester, he/she returns it to the IVCC Bookstore by the published date on the rental agreement and receives his/her $20 deposit back. The student's final textbook rental cost is $28. The rental return period coincides with Buyback.You may rent textbooks online at ivccbookstore.myresero.comWhen your textbooks appear on the screen, choose the line item including 'to rent'.
