"Transforming Lives Through Quality Learning Experiences"


Textbook Buy-Back Policy

The ASU-Beebe, ASU-Searcy, ASU-Heber Springs bookstores will conduct a cash buyback of used textbooks during FINALS WEEK of the Spring, Summer and Fall semester. ASU-Searcy will not be included in the summer buybacks.

  • Purchases made for the campus bookstores will be limited to textbooks that will be used during future semesters.
  • We will be able to determine the buyback demand and value by scanning the book at the time of buyback.
  • As a way to say “thank-you” to our loyal customers, we usually pay more for books that are purchased from one of the campus bookstores and are returned WITH THE ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, so remember to keep your receipt.
  • “Loose-leaf” books will be purchased for a reasonable price but must be in a binder to be considered for buyback.
  • Books with torn spines, missing covers, excessive filth, WATER DAMAGE, etc. will not be bought back. 
  • Final determination of the quality and condition of a text will be made by the bookstore manager.
