It's like a scholarship for every student

Welcome to the Textbook Rental Department! Southeast Missouri State University offers a unique benefit for our 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 students at a fraction of the cost of the textbook.  This cost savings benefit is for Undergraduate and Graduate students who are enrolled in 100-599 level courses and/or cross listed 400/600 level courses where the primary textbook is available at Textbook Rental.

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!
