Buyback Information

The next on-campus book buyback is scheduled as follows:

Thursday, August 2, 2012
8:00 AM – 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM
At the MCC Bookstore

Here is how to get the most for your textbooks:

  • Keep your book in good condition (e.g., ensure there are no water stains).
  • A small amount of writing or highlighting is okay, but the majority of pages should not be marked.
  • Hang on to any CDs or supplemental materials that shipped with the textbook.
  • Make sure no pages are torn out or missing.
  • Do not wait too long to sell your book to the bookstore. The most recent edition of a textbook sells best.
  • If your book is being used the next semester by classes at MCC, the MCC Bookstore will pay fifty percent (50%) of the new price for books needed. Once sufficient quantity is reached, the buyback price is dependent on the publishers.
  • Book buyback is performed on the Williamston MCC campus and is done on the last exam days of each semester and other designated times. Continually check the MCC Bookstore page for more information on book buybacks.
