Sell Back Textbooks

At the Missouri State Bookstore, we buy back books from students. Based on inventory demands students can receive up to 50% of the new price. Books for which we have no adoption information will be bought back at the national market price which is based on the popularity of the book, along with supply and demand. Old editions and out of print books generally have little or no buyback value.

The University Bookstore buys books year round based on national fair market value, but the best time to sell your books is generally during semester finals.
