Where & WhenFrequently Asked QuestionsTop Buyback Titles



Titles appearing on this list represent our top 1/2 price buyback titles. A title appearing on this list is not a guarantee that you will receive 50% of the textbook purchase price. If we have reached our quota for that title and the book has no wholesale value, we won't be able to buy the book. Several factors are use to determine how much CASH you can get back for your used textbooks, including:

Condition: We only buy back books in resalable condition. (Missing pages, water damage, excessive highlighting, the answers written in, a broken binding, etc. are not acceptable buyback conditions.)

Course Materials Orders: If an instructor has requested your textbook for next term, then the value increases. Books falling into this category may be worth anywhere from 30% to 50% of the original purchase price. Generally speaking, textbooks will be purchased until we reach our shelf stock limit.

Overstocks and Current Editions Not Being Used on Campus: If we have reached our limit on a particular title for next term, or if your book has not been requested for next term and is a current edition, we may still purchase it. The CASH back you will receive is based on various criteria including the national demand and the needs of other bookstores.
