Rental Book Return

To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus we will have set dates and times for all RCTC rental books and all Spring semester 2020 PSEO books to be returned to the RCTC Bookstore. Please place all rental books from Spring semester 2020 in a box with the attached form filled out and included inside the box.  Please seal the box and drop off at the RCTC Atrium during the following dates and times only:

May 4, 6, 11, 13, 18 and 20 from  10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. each day.

There will only be someone available at these set times to assist you.

If you decide to mail your books back, please fill out the attached form and include it inside the box and mail it to the following address:

RCTC Bookstore

851 30th Ave. SE

Rochester MN 55904

All books must be received or postmarked by May 20, 2020 to avoid being charged the cost of a new textbook.

If you have decided to keep the textbook, please email  us at with a phone number that you can be reached at during the day. We will call you so that you can pay the difference in the rental price (what you paid) and the purchase price with a credit card over the phone. This difference needs to be paid for by May 20, 2020.

Please remember that all rental books must be in good condition with no water damage or excessive wear and tear. If the book is not in good condition when we receive it, you will be billed the cost of a new textbook.

Please note that the Bookstore staff is currently working from home so all questions should be directed to:
