Book Buyback Information

ECU Dowdy Student Stores offers a book buyback service at the end of each semester, paying you top dollar for most used books.  Books may be bought back at other times of the school year as well -- check at the Customer Service Counter just inside the store entrance if you are interested.


Picture ID is required when selling back books. Please do not sell any RENTAL textbooks by mistake! Remember to check the return due date for any rental books you may have and return by the deadlines. Rental books, rented at Dowdy or through the Dowdy web site, can be returned to Dowdy, but please do not try to sell them.

Distance Education Students will find information about Book Buyback here.

If you have additional questions contact Dowdy Student Stores at 252.328.6731 or contact us online.

Prices are subject to change, please visit our store or remote location for more information.
