Fall 2020 Textbook Rental Pickup Process

In an effort to keep students safe and reduce contact between individuals, Textbook Rental will offer drive-thru rental book pickup for the Fall 2020 semester. Students will schedule their pickup date and time online.

Students living on campus will receive their rental books upon housing check-in and will not need to schedule a pickup date/time. Students registered for 100% online courses, will have the option of picking up rental books or having them shipped at no charge and will receive an email to make their pickup/delivery selection.

All other students will utilize the drive-through process.

ALL FEES MUST BE PAID PRIOR TO PICKING UP TEXTBOOKS AND YOUR SOUTHEASTERN ID WILL BE REQUIRED. New students will receive an email from Campus Card Operations with ID pickup details. If a replacement ID is needed, you may pay the $15 fee with a credit or debit card online using the GET program or at the Campus Card Operations Office located on North Campus Financial Aid Building, Room 133.

Textbook Rental will begin distributing books via the drive-through process from Wednesday, August 5th through Friday, August 21st during the following hours:

August 5th - August 16th

Monday - Friday 7am - 7pm
Saturday - Sunday 8:30am - 5:30pm

August 17th - August 21st

Monday - Thursday 7am - 5pm
Friday 7am - 12:30pm


Students will schedule their pickup date and time here. An email and/or text confirmation will be sent with pickup details. This confirmation will also include an option to reschedule appointments if needed.

Please contact Textbook Rental at (985) 549-3780 with any questions.


Our mission is to provide quality service to Southeastern Louisiana University students by providing their basic textbooks through the rental program, while maintaining the highest degree of student service consciousness.

At Southeastern, students RENT their textbooks instead of having to buy them!  Textbook Rental provides Southeastern students an economical alternative to purchasing textbooks. You can expect to save hundreds of dollars each semester on textbook costs alone! 

The current rental fee for a course which has a rental book is $50 regardless of the number of textbooks required for a course. Some courses do require the purchase of supplemental workbooks or manuals which are sold at the University Bookstore located in the Student Union. Students interested in building a professional library do have the option of purchasing their rental textbooks.

Books that are not included in the Textbook Rental System are available for purchase from the University Bookstore. (Purchases can be made online using the same link).
