The University Bookstore is committed to providing students with the best possible balance of textbook price and convenience.
Textbook Rental - Selected textbooks will rent for less than 50% of their original price. Textbooks can be rented directly from the Bookstore or online. For more information, visit albany.bncollege.com
Bookstore Buyback - The University Bookstore buys back books everyday. The best time to sell your books back is right after finals. Buyback pricing is based on two criteria:
- The Bookstore will pay you 50% of the selling price if the professor has informed the Bookstore that the book will be used the following term and the Bookstore needs more books to meet the demand.
- If the Bookstore does not need the book for the following term we will pay you the latest national pricing.
Low-Price Guarantee - The Bookstore it is your best, most complete source for textbooks, we have every textbook used in any class on campus. Textbook identification numbers called ISBNs are available online during course registration to allow students to shop comparatively. However, the University Bookstore will match prices offered at local "brick-and-mortar" bookstores upon presentation of proof of lower local pricing.
