Textbook buy back

Fall 2018 Book Buy Back

Turn Your Textbooks into Cash

Turning your textbooks into cash is easy when you follow these simple steps: 


Find your textbooks

During your last week of classes in each semester, locate the gently-used textbooks you want to sell. The UFV Bookstore will look to buy back textbooks that are in good condition with no rips, tears, or extensive marking. To receive the best price, the textbooks must be current editions that the bookstore can re-sell for the next semester's courses.

Coursepacks, looseleaf textbooks or bundled materials that are now missing pieces will not be accepted.


Identify the next Textbook Buy Back dates

Confirm the next Buy Back dates on our website, or social media.
Typically, the Buy Back dates are in January and September during the first week of classes, and December and April during the last week of exams. 


Drop by the Bookstore to sell your books

Bring your books to either the Abbotsford Bookstore or the Chilliwack Bookstore during the Buy Back period, to have them appraised and purchased by our team.

Please note that we are unable to confirm if your book will be eligible for Buy Back over the phone or email.
