Buyback Policy:

The Campus Shoppe makes every effort to assure you of the highest possible payment for your used books. Timing is important when deciding to sell a book. Although there are various dates and times that the Campus Shoppe buys used books, you are most likely to get top value for your books if you sell at the buy-back held during the week of final exams. Please bear in mind that the payment for your used books is governed by information available from the professors, price quoted by the wholesalers, the general condition of the book and whether or not the book will be used on campus the next semester.

In general, if your book is in good condition, you can expect:

  • 50% of the list price for current edition textbooks that will remain in use during the following semester, and are needed by the store.
  • Up to 33% of the list price for current edition textbooks that will be discontinued the next semester. The Campus Shoppe will represent the wholesaler and buy your books for them.

You do not need your sales receipt to sell your used books. DO NOT CARRY BOOKS INTO THE STORE.
