Gettysburg College Bookstore - Textbook Buyback Guidelines
- The Bookstore provides textbook buyback at the end of each semester in conjunction with Final Exams.
- If faculty requests a specific textbook for the upcoming semester, the Bookstore will offer to buy back the needed copies of the textbook at a greater value (up to 50% of the original purchase price).
- Once the Bookstore has reached its needed supply, the buyback value of the textbook drops (from up to 50% of original purchase price) to wholesale (0 – 30% of original purchase price).
- Wholesale value (0 - 30% of original purchase price) is the national average value for a textbook determined by available supplies and demand on College/University campuses.
- The Bookstore will buyback textbooks no matter where they were purchased, provided we have a need or the textbook has Wholesale value.
- The Bookstore pays cash for textbooks we buyback.
- DO NOT SELL YOUR RENTED TEXTBOOKS – Rental books must be returned to the Bookstore by 5:30pm the last day of final exams to avoid significant, additional charges.
- Some course materials have little or no monetary value:
- Out of print title
- Old edition
- Instructor, Complimentary or International editions
- Questionable condition
- Access Code
- Art Supplies
- For the protection of our students, we always require valid student identification when selling textbooks.
- Textbooks thought to be missing, lost or stolen should be reported to the Office of Public Safety.
