Due to the impacts of COVID-19 mitigation, the MSUM Bookstore is currently
closed and we have changed our book rental return process. As of May 23, the
prepaid return label is no longer available and return postage will be your
responsibility if you choose to mail them in.
Deadline Extension & Fee Reduction
The book rental return date has been extended to Friday, May 22, 2020. Also, for Spring Semester 2020, the fee for non-returned books has been reduced from $25 per title to $10 per title.
How do I know if my book is a rental?
Included in this email message are your outstanding rental book titles along with the costs associated with them if they are not returned by the Friday, May 22 deadline. Additionally, most rental books have a rental tag on the lower, right-hand side of the back cover. The tag indicates a return date of May 15, 2020. This is the date that has been extended to Friday, May 22, 2020.
What if my rental book doesn’t have a rental tag?
If there is NOT a rental tag on the rental book, please insert a sheet of paper inside the front cover of the book with your name and DragonID number, so that we are able to identify the book as belonging to you.
The MSUM Bookstore is closed, so how do I return my rental books?
Option 1: Drop off at MSUM Campus Post Office
You can drop off your book rentals at the MSUM Campus Post Office located in the northeast corner of MacLean Hall right next to the Bookstore from 12PM-2PM Monday-Friday. You will need to access the post office door specifically which is on the northeast side of MacLean Hall. It is not the main entrance. You must have your DragonID card to enter the building and use the door east of the main entrance.Your original receipt is NOT required for book rental returns.
Another option outside of these hours is
a drop box located outside MacLean Hall main entrance. It will have a sign
stating "BOOKSTORE RENTAL RETURNS".
Option 2: Ship to the MSUM Bookstore
As of May 23, the prepaid USPS return label
is no longer available and return postage will be your responsibility. DO NOT
use the prepaid label after May 22nd.
Rental book returns to the MSUM Bookstore must be postmarked by Friday, May 22, 2020 and mailed to:
1104 7th Ave S
Moorhead, MN 56563
USPS Media Mail. This is most likely the least costly way to ship your rental book returns. You will need to take your pre-packed book rental returns to your local post office.
USPS Priority Mail. To use this method, you can access the USPS website, pay online, get a label and then drop off your book returns at your local post office.
Rental Book Return Reminders
During finals week, you will also receive at least 3 more email reminders listing your book rentals which have not yet been returned. Please check your official email account regularly for these reminders as well as any changes or updates to this process.
