Bookstore Buyback Policy
The Buyback list consists of those titles which have been selected by faculty for each term.
Textbooks on the Buyback list will be bought back for up to 1/2 of the price you paid.
If we cannot buy back your textbook, it is for one of the following reasons:
The instructor has requested a different book than was used last semester
The course has been dropped from the curriculum
We already have a full quota of books for the course
The publisher has advised us of a forthcoming new edition
The textbook has gone out of print
The textbook is in poor condition (water damage, etc.)
The course is offered only once a year or every other year
We have not received a request from faculty to provide the book
We cannot buy back tapes, computer software, or workbooks
NOTE: As a courtesy to students, the Bookstore will provide for a used book wholesaler, College Book Co., to make you an offer on most of the books the Bookstore cannot buy. You will get the most for your books during finals week, because our need is greatest at that time.
Expiration date for this estimate:
We now offer two buyback options for your convenience:
- In-Store Buyback: Textbook Buyback is open in our store most of the year. We will give you a buyback quote when we scan your book in the store. We will also honor price quotes printed by you from the Nebraska Book Company’s mail-in program below.
Your best bet for a high buyback price is to bring your books in during finals week.
- Mail-In Buyback: We are now offering another easy way to sell back your used textbooks. We have partnered with Nebraska Book Company to pay you top dollar for your books. Enter one or more ISBNs below to add them to your buyback book list, tell us where to send the check, print the prepaid shipping label, and you’re done.
Prices are subject to change once need has been met.
