Buyback & Rental Return Information

Buyback Policy

The Bookstore's commitment to students is to buy back as many books at the end of each semester as can possibly be resold the following term. That usually includes over 80% of our titles. During this time the Bookstore will pay up to 50% of the original purchase price on all copies needed by us for the following semester - even for copies originally purchased used and those purchased elsewhere! Following are some reasons why the Bookstore may not buy back certain titles:

  1. Publishers change books
  2. Faculty change books
  3. The Bookstore is overstocked on a title
Discontinued books may still have a "wholesale" value, if the edition is current. These books are purchased by us for a USED BOOK company that resells them to other schools. Wholesale values range from 10-30% of the original new price. Buyback prices are subject to change without notice.

**Buybacks are only done at the store. Please DO NOT mail-in Buybacks. 

Pricing & Demand

Students can sell books anytime, if there is a listed value in our wholesale catalog, but the best price is during last week of each semester.

Don't wait too long!
While we make every effort to give you the most back for your books, don't wait too long--some books have limited quantities being purchased. The condition of the book, national demand, new editions, missing pieces and overstocks can affect the resale value of your books.


Rental Return


Textbooks that are rented are due back to the bookstore no later than the last day of Finals of the current semester. If you would like to return your rental books before finals week,  rental returns are accepted inside the bookstore. 


If you would like to mail-in your Rental textbook(s), please click here for the Mailing label and packing slip to include in your package. Please carefully pack your rented textbook(s). The customer is responsible for shipping costs necessary to return textbook rentals. The bookstore encourages students to send textbooks back using a trackable method, such as USPS media mail, FedEx, or UPS. Please keep your tracking number for your records. Mail-in should be postmarked by the last day of Finals to be considered on time. Returns postmarked after the last day of Finals may not be accepted. 


Please include your Name and Student ID number to ensure your textbook rental return is recorded correctly. Rental returns without this information may result in rental fees.



   Do NOT sell your rental book at book buyback. It is your responsibility to know which book(s) are rentals
