You can sell your textbooks back most every day at the UVM Bookstore, but the Best time to sell back your textbooks is during BUYBACK, which at the end of each semester during exam week.
All buyback prices generated on this system are subject to change. Prices quoted here are wholesale prices only. Please bring all your course books to the bookstore for the most current prices. Some titles may have greater value than this estimate indicates and some titles may have value even though the estimate indicates none. To begin, simply enter the required information about your textbooks below.
Please bring CCV and UVM specific titles to the store for a buyback quote! Even though this system may show no value, we will give you top value for them if they are currently being used for CCV or UVM courses.
The UVM Bookstore buys back textbooks mostly every day (call first to verify) all year round. The best time to sell your books is during buyback. (Buyback dates are during UVM exam weeks, in May and December, each year. See our Hours and Information page for exact dates.) This is when the bookstore has orders from the professors regarding which books are being used at UVM & CCV for the following semester. If they are being used here, the bookstore will pay top value for your books. Many books now include a CD or other inserts. It is a good idea to bring the inserts with the books to buyback because the value may be significantly lower without these inserts. If the bookstore doesn't have an order from the professors, then a used book wholesaler buys the books to be used at other colleges and universities throughout the country. These are valued at up to 1/3 of the new textbook price and are based on national supply and demand. Recycling your textbooks is good for the environment and lowers the price of textbooks for everyone. Custom published books are not eligible for buyback. You do not need a sales receipt to sell your books or to have purchased them from UVM Bookstore.
