If you wish to buy the textbook you have rented, for your professional library, a purchase period is set each semester. Buy your current rental textbooks — or any textbook in the Instructional Resource Rental inventory — for 25% off the replacement price. You may buy the materials any time during the purchase period; the sale is final.
Purchase Periods For Rental Materials
Purchase Periods for Rental Materials begin the third week of each semester and end two weeks prior to the beginning of final exams.
Once the purchase period has passed for a particular semester, IRR Department materials can still be purchased at the full replacement value.
Students taking their courses online may purchase their rental textbooks by calling the University Bookstore at 715-836-2172.
