      Textbook Buyback Program

Some CIE and World College lesson modules include textbooks that would qualify for our Textbook Buyback Program.

CIE’s Textbook Buyback Program would enable you to sell your textbooks back to CIE for tuition credit once you are finished with your learning module. They must be in a like-new appearance with no marks, tears or folds.

You are under no obligation to use this service but if you don’t want to keep your textbooks for reference we’ll be happy to buy them back and give you tuition credit. You can start this program at any time during your course.

Here’s how the program works:

1. Look at the list of textbooks eligible for the buyback program. If the course you enrolled in is listed under the course column you’re eligible to use this service.

2. The amount of tuition credit you would receive for your textbooks is listed in the far right column. It will be applied towards your tuition balance upon receipt of your like-new textbook. Students who are paid in full with all CIE accounts would get an option of a bookstore credit or a refund for the buyback amount.

3. Once you are finished with all the lessons that your textbook covers you can fill out and mail the Buyback form with your textbook to:

Textbook Buyback Program
Cleveland Institute of Electronics
1776 E. 17th Street
Cleveland, Ohio 44114

4. If you have a previous edition other than what is listed on the buyback form please call or e-mail the Instruction Department at (800) 243-6446 or

CIE’s Textbook Buyback Program is simple to use, convenient and rewarding!
