Put some money back in your pocket - sell your textbooks back to the SFCC bookstore. What other items can be purchased, used for a semester, and then sold back to the store for cash? Not much comes to mind, we have textbook buyback at the end of the fall and spring semester - right here on campus!

At the end of the fall and spring semester the SFCC bookstore holds Textbook Buyback. Dates will be posted on this page a month before finals week.

Typically you'll find buyback notifications on My SFCC, SFCC Social Media, and on the TV monitors around campus.

 

The SFCC Bookstore advises students to preview used texts before purchasing them. We do our best to ensure only quality used texts reach the shelves, but sometimes we miss a few.

 

SFCC STUDENT ID REQUIRED FOR BOOK BUYBACK

The SFCC Bookstore may purchase selected textbooks during final exam week of each term.

  • The bookstore may purchase textbooks in good condition that meet the criteria established by the college bookstore

  • Textbooks may be purchased at 50% of the current retail price if: the title has been ordered by the instructors for the following semester, the title is a current edition and the bookstore is not overstocked with the title.

  • If we haven't heard from the professor about your book, you might still get money for it, but maybe not as much. It depends on the national demand for the book, and whether it's an older edition of the title. This price is determined by the wholesaler.

  • The bookstore will not purchase: textbooks in poor condition, workbooks, study guides, lab manuals, handouts, reference books. DVD’s, CD’s or books with software, or books with online access codes.

  • Sorry - we cannot accept books with broken bindings, missing pages, liquid or other damage making it unable to be re-used. If you wouldn't want to buy it, chances are we won't either.

  • Don't worry if you can't find your receipt - textbook buyback is different from a textbook refund. Since we're buying the book and not granting a refund, no receipt is necessary.

IN STORE TEXTBOOK BUYBACK IS HELD DURING FALL AND SPRING FINAL EXAM WEEK ONLY!!!

Be advised that there are no guarantees that the Book Buyer will buy back your book. When the SFCC Bookstore's quota is met, the wholesale value will be offered, if one exists. Purchasing materials from the SFCC Bookstore does not guarantee buyback.
