When a student sells back their books.
The value of a given textbook through the online buyback is typically wholesale. Wholesale value is the current market value based on MBS analytics. Follow the buyback link above to check the value of your books.
Most used books are considered multiple use items and may contain some highlighting or writing. This is not the case for study guides, workbooks, lab / special manuals, and law books. No more than 6 pages of the book can have writing. Many books come with CDs, manuals, or other supplementary materials. When selling a book back these items may be required. Items should be free of any kind of visible damage including but not limited to water / liquid damage, spine damage, loose or missing pages, and books with torn, taped, or missing covers. Books must be in sellable condition to be purchased. Instructor's, teacher or professional editions or international editions are not accepted.
Yes. The student will be billed through Student Business Services the difference between the original purchase price and amount paid to rent the textbook.
Before the book buyback period, student-athletes must pick up their book scholarship form from their academic advisor. Between the buyback dates,student-athletes must bring their book forms and all books purchased with their forms to the bookstore for buyback. The bookstore will note on the form which books were bought back and for what value. If the bookstore does not buy any book back for any reason, student-athletes must return the book and form back to their advisors. At that time, the advisors will take the student’s forms and note on their sheets that the student has returned the un-bought book back to ACSA.
If a student fails to return their book form entirely, they will be assessed a 50% charge of the original purchase value to their student account (via financial aid). If a student fails to return a book that was listed on their form as no value or lost, they will be assessed a 50% charge of the original purchase value to their student account.
