Book Buy Back

Textbooks are unique. There aren't too many items that can be purchased, used for months and then returned to the store for cash back. And selling them back is a great way to put some money back in your pocket. We offer a buy back opportunity at the end of Fall and Spring semesters in the Cafeteria in the main building.

There are several critical factors in determining how to value your books being sold back:


Any book being sold back must be in good shape, with binding, covers and every page intact. If the text contained a disk it must be included. Excessive highlighting, underlining or other markings will cause a book to lose buy back value.

Course Materials Orders

If an instructor has requested your textbook for next semester, the value increases. Books falling into this category could be worth half of the new purchase price. Generally speaking, textbooks will be purchased until the Bookstore reaches its stock limit.

Overstocks and Current Editions Not Being Used on Campus

Once the Bookstore has reached its limit on a particular title for the next semester, or if your book has not been requested for the next semester but is a current edition, you will receive from the buyer the current market price.
