Texbook Buy Back

Most textbooks have resale value after you are finished with them. The Campus Store can buy them back from you, even if you bought it used. It's a nice way to put some cash back in your pocket or to get a head start on buying books for your next semester.

Although ACES Campus Store can buy back textbooks year round* at our Alfred location, the best time to sell them back is during the last week of every semester. Even if you did not buy your books on campus, you can sell them back at the Alfred Campus Store. New edition books that are needed on campus in following semesters have the highest value. Other books can also be part of the buyback. If they have market value, the wholesaler will buy them back and send them to other campuses where they are needed.

Textbook buy-back is also always available on-line.

* We cannot buy back textbooks during the first three weeks of every semester because of book rush. Also, we cannot buy back the week before exam week of each semester).
