Buyback of Textbooks

We buyback textbooks if we have a book order for the next term and copies are needed. Students should bring their textbooks back to the bookstore at the end of the semester to receive up to 50% cashback. Finals week is the best time to get the most cash back, so sell early!

Books must include all original material and a Student ID or identification may be required at the time of buyback.

Textbook Rentals

Renting is easy and cost-effective. A majority of textbooks are available to rent. All book returns are subject to specific guidelines. Students must adhere to all book return policies. When shopping for textbooks in-store, the course information tag displays a “Rental” option as well as New and Used options.

Students also may shop online for rentals at www.orangecoast.bncollege.com.

Students must be 18 years of age or older and provide a telephone number, government-issued ID, email address, and a personal credit card at the time of purchase. All accepted forms of payment may be used to pay for textbook rentals.

Students may register their email address to receive reminder notices when their rental due date approaches.
