  Buyback prices are determined by whether the Bookstore needs the book for a following term. If the Bookstore
does not, students will be offered the wholesale price offered by the wholesaler running the buyback (MBS Systems).
Sometimes books will have no value to the wholesaler or to the Bookstore.

What determines the price one receives when a textbook is sold back? 

    1. Textbooks adopted by professors for the following term and when inventory is needed are bought back during the end of semester buyback at 10% above market buyback value. 

    2. Textbooks not adopted for the following semester OR if the IHCC Bookstore has met its purchase quota on books adopted for the following semester will be bought back at the current wholesale value. That price is determined by national demand, edition status, and inventory at the wholesaler's warehouse. 

    3. Whether or not the book has all its pieces (CDs, kits, etc., if applicable). The IHCC Bookstore does not buy back examination, desk, professor or other complimentary copies of textbooks from professors nor international copies of books. We will not buy books with water or other excessive damage. Books with excessive damage that are shipped to us or our buyback partners will be returned. If you have questions about the condition of your book for resale, contact us for further information.

Maximize your buyback dollars: First and foremost, arrive at buyback early. Bring your books to our buyback counter as soon as you no longer need them for finals. The longer you wait to sell your books, the greater the chance that the bookstore will already have enough copies and not need yours.

Try the CONVENIENCE and READY CASH you receive when you make the IHCC Bookstore your FIRST CHOICE stop to sell back your books.


You MUST show your Official IHCC ID at the time you sell your books. Please be aware of your rented vs. purchased books. If you receive cash back for rented books, you will be charged fees for non-returned rentals and we are unable to reverse the transaction later. If you have an outstanding book charging balance at the time of book buyback, you must apply the money received towards your balance. Failure to pay book charges will result in a hold on your account, the inability to register for classes and prevent you from charging your books to your account in the future.
