    2. You must have your receipt, school ID and drop slip.
    3. New books must be in mint condition.  If they are shrink wrapped it must not be opened.  Any E-book or access codes must not be opened.  No marks should be written in a book until you are certain you are going to keep it.  Marked books can only be given a used book price.

    Book Buybacks

    Book buybacks are usually scheduled during the last 3 days of the first week of exams and first 3 days of the second week of exams.  If a book will be used in the new upcoming semester and it is in good condition, it will be bought back until all limits are met.

    New books in good condition will be bought back at 1/2 the selling price.
    Used books will be bought back at less than 1/2 the selling price.  Workbooks, lab manuals and study guides will not be bought back. 
    We are not required to buy any book back.  Books that are not bought to use in our store may be bought back through national wholesale companies during the buyback period.
