    Book Purchase and Rental Services

    Aside from purchasing Dean clothing and gear, Dean students may also rent and buy books through the bookstore. To avoid standing in long lines at the beginning of each semester, students are urged to select their books online before arriving on campus. You may do so by visiting, selecting the Books tab at the top of the page, and searching for your books by entering your course information from your class schedule.

    Why should you consider renting your books instead of buying them? So far, students have saved over $400 million with Rent-A-Text, the largest in-store and online rental program in the country. You could save money and also reap the following benefits by renting this semester:

    • Guaranteed the right books for your class
    • Free in-store pick-up
    • Multiple forms of payment, including financial aid (in-store only, not available online)
    • Use the book like you normally would - highlight content and take notes where you see fit
