Return Your Rental Books

For students who ordered textbooks from the physical on-campus SXU Bookstore for spring 2021 courses, textbooks can be returned in person at the on-campus bookstore during business hours. Rentals are due back to the bookstore by no later than May 21 to avoid late fees and other charges. Please check Follett's bookstore website for the latest hours and rental return information.
To ship textbooks back to the store, shipping is at your expense and selecting a trackable service is recommended. To ensure your rental return is correctly processed, please follow the steps below to generate your rental packing slip:

  1. Sign in to your bookstore account using the original email address you used to rent the textbooks. (If you haven't set up or forgot your password, click "Forgot Password?" to reset and follow the instructions; then click "My Account" and next "Rentals.")
  2. Upon sign in, you'll be directed to the "Rentals" page in "My Account."
  3. Scroll down to view "Rental History." Click the "Return by Mail" link and a pop-up will open.
  4. Follow the steps to print your packing slip. Print two copies: one to go in your box and another to take to your shipping carrier.
  5. Take note of your tracking number (if provided by the carrier). You will receive an email confirmation when your rental return is processed.
