Rental books must be returned on or before the last day of the quarter. (Ex. Fall 2021 returns are due Dec 10 at 4:00 pm.)
WCC Campus Store hosts in-store and online textbook rentals.
- Bring your class schedule to the Campus Store and locate your course tag on the shelves. Shelf tags will display price and rental availability for both new and used books.
- Please bring the books you wish to rent to the cashier with any other purchases you may have. Your WCC student ID and a credit or debit card are required to process the rental.
Note: Your rented textbooks are due back in the Campus Store by the last day of the quarter or before. All rental books must be returned in resalable condition, fully bound, with no water stains or other damage, including torn covers or pages, or loose bindings. If a rented textbook is not returned by the deadline, your credit card will automatically be charged the full retail cost (new or used) for the book. See full rental policy.
If a book can be rented, you will see that option while you shop. For example, if the required text for Psych 180 is available for rent or purchase, both options are displayed on the page, like the image below.

There are three ways you can return your rentals:
Rentals can be returned during store hours to the bookstore cashier. Be sure you return the book(s). We will give you a return receipt. You will be charged full price for the rental if you sell items instead of returning them.
If you need curbside service, you can park behind the store near the two brown back doors. There is also a stairway and small shelter close by. You can call us at 360-383-3435 from your car. We will take your books and Student ID inside, then bring you a return receipt. If you have trouble reaching us, please call back, or try 360-383-3437. We may be on the phone with another student.
Rentals can also be returned to the new library drop box. The drop box is located to the left of the front entrance to the Phyllis & Charles Self Learning Commons. Be sure to include this information with the book(s):
- Student’s full name
- Student ID number
- Phone or email where we can contact you
- Name(s) of the book(s)
Rental returns may also be mailed to the bookstore. All mailed rental returns must be received at the bookstore by the Monday following the last day of the quarter. Our address is 235 W. Kellogg Road, Bellingham, WA 98226. You must include the student’s full name, student ID number, and a phone or email where we can contact you, along with the name(s) of the book(s).
