Bookstore Buyback Policy

While buyback is a service offered year-round in the bookstore, the best time to use this service is during finals week and the week after finals. During this period we can offer up to 50% of the original selling price of the textbook providing 1) the textbook is going to be used the following semester and 2) the textbook is in good condition. Damaged books, books missing pages, books with CDs or access code, lab manuals and/or workbooks are not eligible for buyback. Textbooks not being used the following semester will be offered a market value price based on the current national demand. Buyback is a service offered only to Southern Union students; therefore, a valid Student ID is required.

NOTE: Selling stolen books to Southern Union Bookstores is a crime under Alabama and Federal laws. Any student caught selling stolen books may be prosecuted by Barnes & Noble. In addition, the student may be faced with suspension or expulsion from Southern Union State Community College.
