Student First Program

We've heard you!
3 Priorities
1. Lowest cost. We guarantee you the lowest rental price for course materials and match competitor pricing.
2. You need it fast. We are committed to providing your course materials before the first day of class.
3. Make it easy. We are committed to simplifying your textbook shopping experience.
Go to MyBooklist at to place your order or come shop in store.

What has changed?
You can once again enter the book stacks and shop for textbooks yourself. The store no longer requires you to wait while store staff gather your books for you. You can shop the shelves at will. Go to MyBooklist at to see your book list.

We will no longer automatically pick textbooks orders that have not yet been confirmed by you the student. We will only pick and bill you for items you have ordered. Formerly, the store automatically picked student textbook orders without any action required by students. We realize this leads to some confusion. So, we will only pick orders that you have placed on the website. You will only be charged for books you’ve ordered; you no longer need to worry if there are any automatic orders waiting for you as there will not be. You can also shop textbooks in the store.

The Benefits
Lowest Prices Guaranteed
We guarantee our rental prices will be the lowest. Lowest price is important to you so we're making it happen. We search the web over and lower our prices to make sure your rental price will be the lowest price out there.

48-Hr Price Match Guarantee
We will match or beat any legitimate online price like Amazon & Chegg when compared to our rental price (only compared to our rental price). You want confidence that if we missed a low price then you're not out of luck. If you find a lower price from a legitimate online source for the same item (ISBN and edition compared to our rental price) within 48 hours after purchase then come in and let us know and we'll gladly match or beat that price. Why? Our mistake shouldn't be your problem.

Convenient, Early Order Pickup
All items ready for pickup before the first day of class, right here on campus. You don't want to waste time trying to figure out where your books are, chasing a delivery truck, or talking to a call center. We do the heavy lifting so you can relax. Order you books online in advance and we’ll have then waiting for pickup before classes begin. Or, come in to the store and shop the book shelves.

100% Return Credit
Change your class? No problem. 100% refund. You can return any unwanted items at the store in their original condition for full refund up through the Saturday after the University's add/drop deadline (See FAQs below for shipping needs).

  • We really want to give you the lowest price. We update our prices daily to match or beat other online competitors like Amazon or Chegg. If you see a lower price from another store for any item that we rent, just show us the price and we’ll instantly match it. If you buy from us online, then show us a lower price when you pick up your order or within 48 hours after pickup and we’ll credit you the difference. Low price guarantee compares any legitimate online price like Amazon & Chegg to our rental price (only compared to our rental price) for the same ISBN and edition.

  • Your professors submit all their course material requirements for all your classes to the store each semester. We then scurry around to find every single one of your required course materials for the lowest price and have them all ready before the first day of class at a convenient free pickup location or available to shop in store.

  • Login to MyBookList at and see for yourself. This customized book list shows you every item required for your classes. There is no easier way to find or order your textbooks.

  • You can view your book list on MyBookList at You log in with your BYU NetID and password. You'll then see all books required for all classes for which you are registered. This is the course materials list curated by your professors.

  • Relax, we've got your back. You can return any of these textbooks or course materials at the store for 100% credit for any reason--or no reason at all--so you can be flexible with your schedule right up until the University add/drop deadline. You have up through the Saturday after the official add/drop deadline to return any unwanted items for any reason, no questions asked. (Be sure to return them in their original condition.)

  • Renting books saves you tons of money. For rentals, you pay one low price to rent the book for the semester or term and then return the book when you’re done with it. Although things like digital materials or packets are not rentable, we try to rent as many other items as possible so that you can pay less for your textbooks. You can highlight and take notes in your book, just don't get it wet! We can't accept rentals returned with liquid damage. All rentals must be returned by the rental return deadline each semester. For each rental book not returned by the deadline you will be charged the difference between the rental price and the regular book price plus a $5 processing fee.

  • Rental books are always due before the end of the business day on the Saturday after the last day of finals for the semester for which the book was rented.

  • Paying with your BYU Student Account is fast, easy, and secure. Student Account purchases will appear on your account in your BYU My Financial Center. You'll then have 45 days to pay. Any returned or unwanted books are credited to this same account if you originally paid using your Student Account. You can also pay using major credit cards, Cougar Cash, or BYU Store gift cards/certificates.

  • Yes, if you need your books shipped then simply order through MyBookList at and select the appropriate shipping method at checkout.

Fulfilling Our Purpose
