An outside company is brought in at the end of every term to pay cash for textbooks. They will pay up to 50% of new retail, depending on market value. Buybacks are held on the lower level of the Bennett Student Services Center on the Ottumwa campus and in the bookstore on the Centerville campus. Check the
Online Calendar for book buyback dates on campus.
