What is the difference
between a refund and book-buy-back?
A refund is giving you full purchase price for an item you have purchased, within a specified time limit IF it is in the same condition as when purchased. (EX. - if you drop a class, return your books for a REFUND within the first two (2) weeks of class (first (1) week of summer session). Buy-back is when the Bookstore pays you cash for current edition textbooks that you have finished using.

During "BOOK BUY BACK WEEK", when we have compiled a list of books being used the next semester, we offer up to 50% of the new list price.
Can I still sell my books if I miss finals week?
Yes, we offer "wholesale prices" anytime during the year.
What are "Wholesale Prices"?
Wholesale prices are set by private companies that buy books no longer used on this campus for resale to other bookstores.
How does the Bookstore
determine what books are being used?
We send textbook requisition forms to faculty for each course being offered asking them to list books that they will require or have as optional for the next semester.
What is "required"?
If a book is required by the instructor you must have it for that class.
What does "optional" mean?
Optional means it is recommended. You do not have to purchase the book but it may be helpful in the class.
Why does the Bookstore have textbooks that are out-of-stock?
There are several reasons we may run out of a book: Enrollment may be larger than estimated, books may not be available from the publisher, textbook selection information has not been received from the instructor.
