As Bay College students prepare for the start of another academic year, the Bay College Bookstore team is ready to support student success with a range of course material affordability options - including used books, text rental, digital content and price match.
As part of Follett's network of more than 1,200 campus stores and 1,600 virtual stores, Bay College Bookstore offers the largest inventory of used books in the industry as well as Follett's ever-growing text rental program. Students renting through the campus store can enjoy risk-free rental policies while saving up to 80 percent compared to purchasing new.
Follett's rental program saved students nationwide more than $244 million during the 2016-2017 academic year. These savings were made possible through campus store managers’ efforts to drive rental adoptions with faculty, the expansion of Follett’s national rental library (more than 27,000 titles were added), and giving professors the options to make their adopted titles rentable locally or by campus.
For students interested in exploring digital options, Bay College Bookstore offers a wide range of digital learning technologies including Follett's BryteWave digital textbook reader and study tool. Many digital titles provide anytime, anywhere access as well as varying discounts compared to purchasing new print materials.
"Bay College Bookstore is excited to help Bay College students save big this year. Our goal is to ensure each student has affordable access to their needed materials," said Jenny Allard, Bay College Bookstore manager. "We’re focused on driving down student costs by providing a variety of format options and offering our popular price match program.”
Per Bay College Bookstore’s price match program, if students find course materials that they purchased at the campus store advertised at a lower price from a qualifying competitor, they are eligible to receive the difference in price from the campus store. This guarantees students get their materials at the lowest cost possible and allows them to apply price match funds to supplies or other needed materials.
