New CCU textbook option helps students save

Horry County, SC - HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Coastal Carolina students and parents are going to have another option when they pull out their wallets for textbooks this fall.

Coastal Carolina University is offering textbook rental services at the CCU Bookstore this fall, which could save students as much as 50 percent on their book purchases.

Rent-A-Text will offer students a rental option on 64 titles selected by faculty for use this fall and the list of rental titles is expected to grow.

CCU's textbook rental program will be available to students in the store and online with in-store pick up.  It will allow students to choose a form of payment including financial aid and they will also have the option to purchase the textbook at the end of the term.

"Delivering a rental option from the CCU Bookstore will be great for our students," CCU bookstore Manager Cindy Most said. "It offers the students another way to control the cost of their education."
Rent-A-Text will be offered through the University's ongoing partnership with Follett Higher-Education Group, which services the CCU Bookstore.
