At the end of each term, Nebraska book distributor provides buy-back services for used textbooks through the NEO Bookstore. Nebraska provides buy-back information to buy books from students at a percentage of the original price if the Buy-Back Services books are in salable condition and will be used again at the college. If a book has been discontinued at NEO but is still current, you may sell it to the wholesaler at the catalog price.
Q. Why are my textbooks so expensive? A. On the average, 64.8% of the sticker price on new books go back to the publisher, mostly to cover development of the book and normal business expenses. The author gets about 11.6% in royalties. The freight company that shipped the book gets 1.2%. Which leaves the bookstore with not much left.
Q. Do I have to buy my books at the college bookstore? A. No, unless your books are special editions.
Q. What are my options for payment? A. Cash, check, debit card, or if your financial aid has been completed you can charge.
Q. What about buying used books? A. This option is open if used books are available for the required edition.
Q. Do you rent books? A. No
Q. How do I know what books I need? A. Once you have registered, and enrolled into classes you will receive your student ID #. You can go to the NEO website and log in to your web product. Access your schedule and when the textbooks have been loaded you can see the books that are required.
Q. What and when is buyback? A. Buyback is held at the end of first semester in December and last semester (end of school year), the buyback times will also be listed on the Bookstore Web page.
