Thank you for submitting your textbook information! Here are some of the benefits of receiving your order early:

  • Buyback Pricing. If we know what textbooks will be used again on campus for an upcoming term, we can offer a higher buyback price (up to 50% of price paid) to those students wishing to sell back their textbooks at the end of a semester
  • Used Textbooks. By receiving your textbook information, we can start sourcing for used textbooks that can reduce costs to students and in many cases provide a cheaper solution than a competitor can provide.
  • Rental Eligible & Digital Textbooks. Follett has the industry's largest rental library. This can save students 50% or more off the cost of a new textbook. We also have a large digital library available as another cost saving method to students.
