  1. I will return the rental book to the Bookstores by December 27, 2019.
  2. I understand the book rented to me is the property of the University of Minnesota Bookstore. In accepting the terms of this book Rental Agreement, I accept responsibility to use the book and return it to the Bookstore in its original condition (no tears, no water damage, limited writing/highlighting, etc.) or I will be required to pay for a used book as a replacement.
  3. I understand that if my book is damaged at the time of rental, I must contact the Bookstore within 7 days of rental to obtain a different copy. I understand that I assume all liability for damage to my rental book if I do not report it within this time period.
  4. I understand that my rental fee is refundable only if the book is returned to the Bookstore by the last day to return for a full refund for the term (within 3 days of the start of class for 3-4 week classes, and within one week from the start of class for 8, 10, and 13 week classes). Any textbook rented after that date will be considered final; rental fees are non-refundable after this time.
  5. I understand and accept responsibility to return my rental book and its accompanying parts, if applicable (CD's/DVD's, solution manuals, companion texts, etc.) by December 27, 2019. If my rental text is not returned by December 27, 2019, I understand that I will be charged for a used copy of the book in addition to the rental fee I paid at the time of rental.
  6. If my rental text is lost or stolen, I understand that I will need to inform the Bookstores before December 27, 2019. I will be refunded the rental fee and then charged for a used copy as a replacement.
  7. I authorize the Bookstores to charge my Student Account for a used book if the book is not returned by the deadline of December 27, 2019, or if the book is returned damaged (water damage, excessive writing/highlighting, torn pages, etc.) The Bookstores reserves the right to reevaluate the condition of the rental text within 30 days of the return deadline.
