Allen Community College utilizes a rental textbook process to help reduce the cost of higher education to students. Most courses use a rental textbook. The rental price is $14.00 per credit hour. This fee is included in the cost of the course.  Students may be required to purchase a textbook or supplemental material for specialized courses.  These courses are noted on the course schedule and the course and fee statement.

To Get Textbooks:

Students who live on campus or are able to come to either campus may pick up textbooks at the bookstore. Students must have a Business Office clearance sheet and a current student ID to get textbooks.

Students who are not able to come to campus can request to have textbooks mailed.  Textbooks are not mailed automatically, but there is no additional charge to have them mailed within the continental United States. Students who need textbooks mailed internationally will need to pay the cost of shipping.  Students who would like to order textbooks to be mailed should click on the following link:  Textbook Mail Order Form

To Return Textbooks:

All rental textbooks are to be returned to the Allen Bookstore by the Monday after finals.  Students can return textbooks to either campus in person or by mail. To return rental textbooks, students must have their textbook rental receipt with their name and student ID number. For books being mailed back, the bookstore has provided a UPS return label inside each box of textbooks.  If the return label is lost, please mail textbooks back to either of the addresses below:

Allen Bookstore
1801 North Cottonwood
Iola, Kansas 66749

Allen Bookstore 
100 Bloomquist Drive
Burlingame, Kansas 66413

Rental Textbook Return Policy:

To get rental textbooks cleared from student accounts, students must have their textbook rental receipt with their name and student ID number.  If the student does not provide the textbook rental receipt with their name and student ID number they will be charged on their student account a value equal to the replacement cost of each rental textbook. Students are responsible for the return and condition of all rental textbooks checked out to them. Textbooks must be returned in the same condition in which they are rented.  Textbooks damaged by water, animal (example: chewing), stains, tears, or missing pages cannot be returned.  The bookstore reserves the right to refuse any rental textbook returned due to the condition of the book.

A hold will be placed on a student’s account if textbooks are not returned within three business days following finals.

Students not returning rental textbooks within 10 business days following finals will be charged on their student accounts a value equal to the replacement cost of each rental textbook still in their possession.

Textbooks must be returned and account cleared prior to checking out textbooks for future semesters.
