Frequently Asked Questions

Questions

Answers

Can I rent any textbook?
We only offer a limited amount of titles as rentals each semester. You can view all the available titles on the list above. Books that are eligible to be rented will have a neon green price tag in-store that displays the rental price.
What is the rental fee of a textbook?
The cost of a textbook rental is 50% of the new or used retail value of the selected title.
Where can I rent a textbook?
You can rent a textbook by proceeding to the textbook rental area in the north east corner of the bookstore. There you can fill out a rental agreement and receive the book. We do not offer textbook rentals through our website.
How long am I able to rent the textbook for?
Textbook rentals are issued for the duration of the semester they are rented in.
When are textbook rentals due?
Rentals are due no later than the first business day following Finals Week. Please refer to your rental contract for the exact due date to ensure you avoid late fees.
Where do I return the textbook?
You must return your books to Sac Book Rac. DO NOT attempt to return your books to the library or textbook buyback locations, we are not responsible for any misplaced rentals. There will be a line set up for rental returns at the front of the bookstore during finals week.
What happens if I don't return the textbook?
There is a $5.00 a day late fee for five days beginning the second business day after Finals week. If the book is still not returned at the end of that week, the student will owe $25.00 in late fees and must pay the balance of the retail price as we must purchase a replacement. At that point they will own the textbook. A hold will be put on the student's records and they will not be able to register for courses the following semester until all fees are paid.
Can I pay for a rental and purchase a textbook
in one transaction?
Yes, when you receive your rental you may checkout at any one of our checkstands with all your other purchases.
Why do you need my class schedule?
We only have a limited supply of textbook rentals, so we want to ensure students who are registered in the classes that require the book are able to rent them. You must be enrolled in the class you are renting the textbook for, you can not be on the waitlist.
What if I don't have a print out of my schedule?
If you have a smartphone you can access your class schedule through https://inside.mtsac.edu Once you have logged in, click the student tab then click the "print your schedule/receipt" link. We can not access student records from our rental computers.
Can I use any ID or do you require my student ID?
You must have your college issued student ID card to rent a textbook. If you are in need of a student ID, you can also obtain it at the bookstore.
Can I use my Financial Aid?
Yes, we accept some forms of financial aid, EOPS/CARE Vouchers or rehab checks. Any tender that you can currently use to purchase your textbooks in the Bookstore can be used to rent a textbook.
Program Information

Program History

In the Fall of 2010 Sac Book Rac piloted a Textbook Rental program for the students of Mt. San Antonio College. The program began with 19 titles available for rent and 511 textbooks being rented in that first semester. Since then Sac Book Rac has now rented textbooks for 3 semesters, increasing the number of titles each semester. Most recently, in the Spring of 2011 Sac Book Rac rented over 1,700 textbooks and saved students approximately $88,000 in that semester alone. Over the course of the last three semesters combined, the Sac Book Rac has saved students a total of $121, 287. The purpose of the textbook rental program is to give students an affordable option to textbooks. The continued success of this program will require that textbooks are used for at least 4 semesters. We hope to work with faculty to insure that we can continue this program for the benefit of students' education.

The mission of the Sac Book Rac is to provide course materials for students that will assist them to be successful in their academic education.

FIPSE Grant

The federal government has recognized that textbook affordability is a national issue, which affects all students. In July 2010, the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) opened a national grant competition that would award 10 grants of $1 million each to college bookstores to expand existing textbook rental programs or to begin new ones. The Sac Book Rac submitted their grant proposal along with 63 other college bookstores from across the nation. In September 2010, the Sac Book Rac was notified that it had won one of those 10 grants. The grant proposal that was submitted by the Sac Book Rac proposed that students who don't have textbooks during their first year of college may struggle with classes and not have a positive experience; therefore, they may not be successful in their classes. Our goal is to provide textbooks as rentals for classes that students take in their first year and those classes with large enrollments.
