    Selling Books

    Buybacks are an opportunity for you to receive cash for your unwanted textbooks, and usually occurs at the end of each semester during finals week. The bookstore will purchase books that can be used for the upcoming semester. We pay up to 50 percent of the new or used purchase price of the book(s). However, there is no guarantee that you will receive any money. We reserve the right to refuse any textbook that does not meet our criteria. A receipt is not necessary to sell books at buyback.

  • The college catalog is online and contains all course descriptions. You can find a link to the college catalog within eWOLF, under "Registration," then "course descriptions." Simply select a discipline from the list. After you select a discipline, the courses from that discipline will appear. Click a course to view the description.

    If you are looking for a historical catalog that is not online, please contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance.

  • Different sections of a course may use different textbooks, and the only way to know you are purchasing the correct textbook is to select the textbook for your specific course section. 

    There are two ways to do this:

    1. You can view and print a copy of your courses by accessing your eWOLF account. Click on the Detailed Student Schedule or Detailed Schedule links on the Registration page.  You can also buy CCConline books from the FRCC bookstore. 
    2. Login to your eWOLF account, hover over the My Classes page link and select Buy Books from the drop down menu.  Then select your campus, and choose your classes (using the classes you registered for) to find out which books are required.

    Most textbooks are available three weeks before classes start. We stock both new and used books, when available. Used books typically sell out first and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not reserve books. You can buy books online or in a campus bookstore.
