At the end of each semester, the Bookstore conducts Book Buy Back. Book Buy Back is a service to students who elect to use it. It is the Bookstore's opportunity to replenish inventory and the students' opportunity to turn some of their textbooks into cash. Many students take advantage of the Book Buy Back process while others opt to keep their books. This decision is left strictly up to the student.

Although the Bookstore attempts to Buy Back as many textbooks as possible, certain conditions exist that will eliminate a textbook from the Buy Back list. These conditions may include one or more of the following:
  1. The instructor has discontinued use of the textbook for one or more reasons. In this instance, the textbook will no longer be used on campus.
  2. The Bookstore is now overstocked. Due to current inventory levels, the Bookstore does not need to buy a particular textbook back.
  3. The textbook is too ragged and in too poor condition to be re-sold.
The following items are not bought back:
  1. Workbooks and Practice Sets; regardless of condition.
  2. Lab Manuals; regardless of condition.
  3. Study Guides; regardless of condition.
  4. Paperback books other than textbooks. This includes optional textbooks and trade titles.
For those textbooks subject to Book Buy Back, the Bookstore offers one-half of the new price, regardless of whether the textbook was purchased new or used. Those textbooks not being bought back by the Bookstore may have wholesale value. Wholesale value is based upon national demand with the value determined by the wholesaler's representative who is present at the time of Book Buy Back.
