Southeast Missouri State University

It's like a scholarship for every student

Welcome to the Textbook Rental Department! Southeast Missouri State University offers a unique benefit for our undergraduate students. As a long standing tradition, we have a textbook rental system that is convenient and an economic benefit. Students pay a fixed rental fee per course. It is our mission to rent the main textbook required for undergraduate students at a fraction of the cost of the textbook.

Textbook Rental is owned and operated by Southeast Missouri State University for the benefit of our University Community. You help support the University through renting your books at Textbook Rental since all the proceeds from our operations are returned to the University. Thank you for your support!
