NEXT IN-STORE TEXTBOOK BUYBACK:
SCCC STUDENT PHOTO ID REQUIRED
If you miss the In Store Buyback, you can use Buyback Anytime.
IMPORTANT: Please bring all materials that came with your textbooks, CDs, DVDs, and/or unused online access cards.
USED BOOK BUYBACK
A Used Book Buyback is held at the end of each semester during finals week. When books are bought back for The College Store, you receive a percentage of the original retail price of a new book under the following conditions:
The textbook will be required for next semester.
The book has NOT gone into a new edition
The College Store needs additional copies to satisfy estimated enrollments.
The textbook is complete and in saleable condition.
WHY YOU RECEIVE LESS THAN 50% AT BUYBACK
When The College Store textbook quantities are filled, you may elect to sell your textbook to the off-campus USED book buyers. They will pay you their wholesale price, which is usually significantly less than 50% of the NEW price. They are purchasing that book for shipment to their warehouse and are only SPECULATING that they can resell your book to another college campus.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BUYBACK AND TEXTBOOK RETURNS
BUYBACK of textbooks occurs OUTSIDE The College Store, usually at the end of a semester during Finals Week. No receipt is required. RETURNS must be made INSIDE The College Store within 10 days of purchase and must be accompanied by a cash register receipt. They usually result in a full price refund.
