BuyBack Program for Textbooks:

We buy back unwanted textbooks for cash at anytime. The University Bookstore offers a very fair market value which can be up to 40% of publisher list price. Textbooks must be a current edition in good physical condition. Publishers with planned new edition being released does factor into the buyback price. The best value (lowest net cost) option for students is often to purchase a textbook then sell back after the course... Our DMC course booklists shows the net student cost calculations.
