Lincoln College-Normal Bookstore
Unlike conventional campus bookstores, we rent textbooks to students in the Traditional Program for $8 per credit hour. And to make it even more convenient, we combine the book rental fee with your tuition.
Did You Know…
- Since this rental fee is part of your tuition, you don’t need to pay when you pick up your books.
- You have 2 weeks from the date of rental to inspect all books for markings and highlighting. You can return books in that time to receive a clean copy at no charge to you.
- If you return a book after that time, and it is highlighted or has markings, you will be charged the full purchase price of the book.
- You can rent a graphing calculator for $20 per semester; it will be charged to your student account.
All textbooks and graphing calculators rented to students in the Traditional Program are due back to the Normal Campus Bookstore no later than NEED A DATE HERE, to avoid the full purchase price.
