Cash for Books

Buyback Choices
The FTCC Bookstore buys books from students in three different ways! 


Option 1 (In store)

Not available for summer 2020 at this time.

 

Visit the FTCC Bookstore during the Buyback period in order to get cash for your books. The dates for buyback vary based on the academic calender.  See store calendar for buyback details or watch for an announcment on Facebook!

  • The FTCC Bookstore will give students up to 50% of the purchase price for any textbook that we can use for the next semester.
    • This allows the Bookstore to pass textbook savings onto the next student who purchases the textbook
  • If the textbook is not a book that we can use, we may be able to purchase the book for our wholesaler which pays a varying amount based on the current market demand.
  • The process is simple
    • Come to the FTCC Bookstore
    • Show us your student ID or Driver's License
    • Complete the paperwork
    • Take the paperwork over to the cahier's window in the Thomas McLean (Main Administration) Building
    • Get Cash!
