ORU Has Option to Rent Books

Oral Roberts University is now offering textbook rental services at the university book store. The Rent-A-Text program saves students 50 percent or more off the Rent A Textcover price of the nation's most popular textbooks.

"We expect to save students some serious cash this term," said Debbie Haymaker, Manager of the University Store. "Rent-A-Text makes course materials more affordable and offers benefits to students that no other rental provider online or otherwise can match."

Rent-A-Text is made available through ORU's ongoing partnership with Follett Higher Education Group, the largest and fastest growing multi-channel textbook rental provider in North America. The program is based on the company's comprehensive pilot that saved students nearly $6 million dollars on their course materials in just two terms at 27 schools. More than 90 percent of students who rented textbooks expressed satisfaction with the pilot program.
