Your student ID is required to sell your books back. Madison College Bookstore works with a national used book vendor to offer textbook buyback. Buyback is offered every fall and spring semester during final exam week, this is the best time to sell your books for the best value. Book value (up to 50% of the new book price) is based on the following.
  1. Is the book being used again?
  2. Condition of the book
  3. Are all of the components with the book?
  4. How many do we need of that title?
  5. Is it a new/current edition?

The Truax Bookstore offers an in-store buyback (at whole sale pricing) during certain times of the year.
We also offer online buyback through a used book company.

Please understand that the prices offered in store and at our end of term buybacks are often higher than those offered through our online buyback service. However, if you choose not to travel to the Bookstore or wait for the end of the semester buyback the online service may be a great option for you.
