New book rental program promises to save WMU students money

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—College students in Michigan graduate with an average $28,021 in debt.

But a new partnership between bookstore operator Follett and WMU Bookstore should save Western Michigan University students money this school year.

The new program will allow students to rent any textbook available at WMU Bookstore.   WMU is one of only 13 campuses in the country with this program, which is expected to save students more than 50% on textbooks. 

At the end of the semester, students simply return their book to the WMU bookstore.  They can also decide then if they would like to buy the book. The rental service does not apply to one-time use materials like workbooks. For more information on the program, visit WMU Bookstore Shops’ website here.
