Howard University Bookstore, Chegg Launch Textbook Rental Program

WASHINGTON DC (Jan. 14) – Howard University Bookstore (HUB) and industry leader Chegg unveiled a new textbook rental program designed to provide students with a convenient, easy and affordable option.

“The Powered by Chegg program is a win-win partnership for students and the University,” said Antwan Clinton, director of the Howard University Bookstore and Trademark & Licensing. “We are always looking for ways to create seamless systems and economical choices for students.”

Clinton adds that the University will earn a commission to help support the program and other student improvements at the HUB.

Through the  Powered by Chegg program, student can rent their textbooks from their campus bookstore using rental stands for ease and accessibility.  As an added bonus, each time a student places an order, the company plants a tree through its partnership with the American Forests Global ReLeaf Program.
