My Textbooks

To find your textbooks for the coming or current term, log in through PAWS to see your booklist. From there, you can view or print your list to buy your books in store, or you can buy your books online.

Textbook Returns

Textbooks and course materials may be returned to the Main Bookstore, Health Sciences Bookstore or North 40 for refund within 14 days of purchase. Textbooks which include CDs, software or access codes as part of the package are not returnable if the internal seal is broken. All lab manuals and course packages are non-returnable.

Please remember that you will require a vaild University of Saskatchewan Bookstore receipt to return any product.

Extended Returns Period

At the beginning of each major session the normal return period for textbooks is extended to  coincide with registration deadlines for class changes and drops.

No Returns Period

There is a NO RETURNS period for textbooks at the end of each major session. From late November to mid-December and from late March to the end of April, all textbook and course materials sales are final. During these periods, please be certain you have the correct book before making your purchase.

Textbook Buybacks

How do I sell my used textbooks?

Starting December 19th - December 23rd and again starting January 3rd - 6th, you can sell your used books at our Textbook Buybacks table in Upper Place Riel in the Concourse area. Hours are 8:30-4:30 Monday to Friday. If you would like to see which books can be sold, check this link.

Buyback of used textbooks is determined based on a number of factors:

  • Nationwide demand for the textbook
  • Whether the Instructor is reusing the text in the next term
  • Projected needs for the text
