Textbook Rental Program a success

Rent-A-TextOSU-Tulsa students saved more than $55,000 during the first semester of the university’s Rent-A-Text program.

The OSU-Tulsa Bookstore launched the program in July in time for the fall 2010 semester. Through the program, textbooks are available to rent for a variety of classes, most at less than half the cost of the new textbook purchase price.

The Rent-A-Text program is offered through OSU-Tulsa’s partnership with Follett Higher Education Group. It is the nation’s largest textbook rental program and has saved students more than $60 million nationally in the last year.
