The Compton College Bookstore is closed to in-store shopping, but all books and materials needed for Fall 2020 are available online at www.comptonbookstore.com.

The Bookstore conducts "Textbook Buyback" throughout the semester, but the best time for buybacks is the final weeks of each semester/term. Students can receive up to 50% of the purchase price if the textbook has been requested for a future semester; the book is not sold as new-only (fill-in or perforated pages) and the Bookstore is in need of additional copies.

Online Textbook Buyback is available with our partner ValoreBooks. To get started, find the ISBN on the back of the book above the barcode or inside the title page. Enter your information and send in your book(s) within 14 days of receiving your sellback quote. You can score free shipping and receive payment via check or PayPal.

If you have rental books from Spring 2020 or Summer 2020, please contact us regarding returning your books. We can help get your account in good standing and issue refunds once the books are returned in good condition. 


Merchandise must be in new condition, in a sealed package, clean and free of all markings and bearing all original tags. A 10% restocking fee may be assessed on all refunds. Textbooks can be returned for a full refund within the first week of the spring and fall semesters. Textbooks purchased for summer and winter terms have three days from the start of classes to return for a full refund. Textbooks must be in the same condition as purchased and must be accompanied by a register receipt for a full refund.
