Textbook Buyback

During the last week of the fall and spring semesters, the Bookstore will buy back returnable books for cash. A student ID is required to sell back books.

  • Only books that instructors will reuse for the upcoming semester/academic year are considered for book buy back, generally at 50% of the used price, if the books are in good shape as determined by the wholesale book buyer.
  • Things that determine what “shape” a book is in:
    • Marking (a minimal amount of marking may be acceptable)
    • Highlighting
    • Water damage
    • Answers being marked in the book
  • Things that determine resale value of books
    • Instructor is not reusing the book you are reselling
    • The course is not being offered in the upcoming semester
    • The Bookstore has sufficient quantities of your book
    • There has been an update to a newer edition

The Bookstore reserves the right to accept or reject any books as well as making adjustments on the percentage offered for a refund.

Every effort is made to recycle textbooks; unfortunately, not all books are returnable. If the book you wanted to return isn't able to be bought back, we do collect books for Better World Books and those books are shipped to third world countries that make use of the books for literacy and instruction.
