Customer Care offers a year-round textbook and calculator buyback program.  However, the core buyback with the most competitive buyback pricing is offered the last two weeks of each semester during our End of Semester Buyback.  If the Bookstore has a need, we will make a cash offer (regardless of whether you bought the book new or used). It is important to note that you can sell your book back to us no matter where you originally purchased it. In order to sell back a book or calculator, a student must present a valid Cougar ID.



There are several factors that affect the book value and whether or not a book will be bought back:

  • Has your instructor reordered the book for the upcoming semester?
  • Does the Bookstore need more copies, or have we bought our limit?
  • Is the book damaged in any way (missing pages, liquid damage, binding broken)?
  • It there a pending new edition of the book, or is the book already an old edition?
  • Was the book sold as a bundle, and are pieces missing (CD’s)?
  • Was the access code removed or scratched off?
  • Is there a wholesale demand for the book (are other colleges looking to use this book)?
  • We do not buy copies marked as international edition, instructor copy, or free copy.



The calculator buyback program is an effort to help students reduce their overall education costs, as it allows the Bookstore to offer students used calculators at a discounted rate when available.

Calculators must be in good, operable condition with working batteries and a cover. The Bookstore buys the following calculators (one calculator per student per semester):

  • TI-84+ Calculator for $50
  • TI30XS Multiview Calculator for $8
