Textbook Return Policy

All returns require a receipt, original packaging, and price stickers intact. Textbooks may be returned the first two weeks (one week for summer sessions), provided that you have not written in the book and it is in the same condition that it was purchased. Refunds are given in the same method you made the purchase. Refunds by check will be mailed from the Cashier's Office.

Textbook Sell Back

Textbook sell back is always during the week of finals, for exact dates check our website. If the Bookstore has an order for the next semester and that particular text will be used again next semester, the Bookstore will buy the book. If the text will not be used next semester, a whole sale book company will purchase current editions at 10%-40% of new price based on national demand.
