Des Moines Area Community College will begin offering textbook rental services at the six DMACC campus bookstores this fall.
Rent-A-Text will offer a savings that represent 50 percent or more off the price of new textbooks.
“DMACC is committed to offering students an affordable education,” said Doug Williams, DMACC vice president of business services. “Rent-A-Text is an important extension of that commitment to affordability. We’re also encouraging DMACC faculty to consider rental eligibility when adopting course materials, so that we’re providing more students with cost saving options.”
DMACC’s textbook rental program will:
• Be available to students in store and online with in-store pickup.
• Allow students to choose a preferred form of payment, including financial aid.
• Allow students the freedom to highlight and take notes all within the normal wear and tear associated with coursework.
• Give students the choice to buy their textbook during the term if they want to keep the book.
