Book Buyback:
The Butler Community College Bookstore provides, as a service to the students, a cash buy-back during finals week of each semester. IF the bookstore purchases your book for college use for the upcoming semester, you will be paid 50% of the sticker price, except for books containing ”one-user software“. That price will be calculated without the cost of the software. CDs, workbooks and supplements accompanying the original purchase are necessary to consider the book for buy-back. The college bookstore receipt is required.
Buy back is NOT guaranteed on every book purchased from the Bookstore! Buyback quotas are based on expected enrollment of the upcoming semester and current inventory in the bookstore.

Approximately one week prior to the buyback dates you may obtain a list of books being considered for buyback by visiting www.butlercc.edu, click on the link to the bookstore page and then select the Semester Book Buy Back link. This will give you the current list of books being considered for Butler Community College’s buyback. The wholesalers that assist the college in our buyback event may be able to buy books other than those books designated on our website.

  • The Bookstore does NOT buyback:
    • Spiral bound books
    • Lab books/ workbooks/ textbooks formatted as a workbook (fill in the blank/perforated pages)
    • Textbooks formatted in 3 hole punch format

Your receipt is an official tax document. It is very important that you retain your receipt because the bookstore cannot guarantee the ability to reprint your receipt.
