In order to make textbooks more affordable for students, Fayetteville State University has adopted a Textbook Rental Program. This program includes an across the board charge to all students. The Textbook Rental Program includes hardback and paperback textbooks that are required for courses. Paperback textbooks must have a new retail value of $50.00, or above. The Program also excludes any course materials with a retail price of less than $50.00, course packs, or any course materials with a one-time use, ancillary study guides, and lab books. Exception for Graduate Students: The Textbook Rental Program allows graduate students the option to participate in the Rental Program or to purchase books. This option must be exercised at the time the graduate students register each semester and cannot be changed during the semester.
