Book Buyback Information

The University Store buys back used textbooks daily during regular store hours throughout the year as well as during the major book buyback events held during final exam week in both the fall and spring semester.

There are several factors that affect the price offered for your book, including:

  • Condition of the book (water damaged books are not bought back)
  • National demand for title
  • Campus demand for title (based on instructor's book adoptions for upcoming semesters)
  • The University Store advises that you do your research before selling your books to get the best price possible. Ask the competition for their buyback policy before you sell.
  • Photo ID is required to protect you from book theft.
