Remember to RETURN your rented books!

Term 3-2014 Rental Books are due June 16, 2014
If you rented a textbook for Term 3-2014, it needs to be returned to the Downtown Bookstore by Monday, June 16, 2014.  If off-island, your shipment must be postmarked by June 16, 2014 (instructions to ship your rental can be found on the HPU Bookstore Website).  Receipts are not required, but helpful in processing returns.  Student ID or picture ID is required for the rental returns.  Rented books can be identified by the green rental sticker on the front cover. Rental books must be returned in saleable condition.

Want to keep your rental book?
A buyout of the textbook is available until the due date. Buying out the textbook is a great option for students who would like to keep their textbook or if their book has been lost or damaged. The buyout can be done online under the students' account on the bookstore's website, or in person at the Downtown location.    

Students who do not return their rental books by the due date or take advantage of the buyout option will automatically be charged for the replacement cost and a processing fee for the unreturned textbook/s.

The HPU Bookstore Downtown will also be open on Saturday, June 14th, 2014 from 9am-noon to accommodate rental returns.
