  • Textbook Buyback Begins December 4: Although you may sell your textbooks back to The College Stores any day, the best time to get the most value for textbooks is at our end of the semester buyback. Textbook buyback begins on Thursday, December 4. Our number one goal is to purchase your textbooks for 50% of the price you paid for them at the beginning of the semester. Thus, if you paid $100 for a textbook, you could receive up to $50 at the end of the semester. Learn more about textbook buyback...
