All rented items must be returned to the College by the close of hours on the 5th college business day after the last day of final exams. Beginning on the sixth day, students will be charged new retail price of unreturned rentals. Textbook return deadlines are published on the Laker Calendar.
After the period mentioned above, any textbooks that have not been returned to the Bookstore will become the property of the student and the total cost for those books will be added to their bill.

Students with late textbook charges will be blocked from receiving transcripts and will not be able to register for any classes until the charges are paid.

Students can stop by the Bookstore or Kluthe Center during normal business hours with a valid picture ID (i.e. driver’s license or passport) to get a Lake Land Student ID made.
There is a $10 fee for replacement IDs.
