Davidson students can sell their textbooks back to the Davidson College Store at the end of each semester. All textbooks required for Davidson courses are eligible for buyback, but the textbooks will be purchased below the current retail price.
We guarantee that we will pay as much, and sometimes more, for all of your used textbooks than other companies that may want to buy your books.
The bookstore pays students up to 50 percent of the current new book price if the book is scheduled to be used for the upcoming semester. Textbooks that won't be used the following semester will be purchased by the bookstore at its wholesale market value, which can range from 10 percent to 35 percent of the retail price.
All transactions are final, and will be paid in cash.
If you have rented your textbooks, be careful not to sell your rented textbooks at the book buyback. Textbooks rented through the bookstore's website affiliates, including Follett and Skyo, may be returned to the bookstore at anytime, and the bookstore will return them as stipulated in your rental agreement.
Bring your used textbooks to sell, or your rented textbooks to return, to the Service Bar, located on the second floor of the College Store located at 137 North Main Street.
To receive a full refund for your textbook purchases, the course materials must be returned in new condition, along with the original sales receipt, during specific deadlines outlined in the bookstore's textbook return policy.
