What's Buyback?

Put some money back in your pocket - sell your textbooks back to the bookstore. What other item can be purchased, used for a semester, and then sold back to the store for cash? Not much comes to mind, we have textbook buyback at the end of every semester - right here on campus!

Getting cash for books is easy:

1) At the end of each term or semester, University Books & More holds Textbook Buyback. Dates are listed above on this page, and also on the bottom of our refund policy, which you received with your book purchase.

2) You'll find buyback windows in the hallway at Reeve Memorial Union, near the Algoma Blvd. entrance.

3) Present your books at the window (please remove any notes or personal belongings) and get money.

Pretty simple, right? Learn more about how buyback works:

If your professor has told us that your book will be used for an upcoming semester, you can get as much as 50% of the book's new price - whether you bought it new or used. If we haven't heard from the professor about your book, you might still get money for it, but maybe not as much. It depends on the national demand for the book, and whether it's an older edition of the title.

To get the maximum value for the book, hang on to all CDs, disks, and supplement pieces you bought with your book. If you bought a package set of books, we might need all the pieces for the next semester - and we might not buy incomplete sets.

Sorry - we cannot accept books with broken bindings, missing pages, or books too damaged to be re-used. If you wouldn't want to buy it, chances are we won't either.

Don't worry if you can't find your receipt - textbook buyback is different from a textbook refund. Since we're buying the book and not granting a refund, no receipt is necessary.
