Students Receiving Financial Aid

Voucher codes and instructions were communicated to financial aid recipients in July. If you did not receive this information or have misplaced it, please contact the Business Office.


Textbooks are delivered via UPS Ground, Second Day Air, or Next Day Air. Shipping rates are calculated using the current UPS rate based on weight of the package. UPS SurePost is also currently available. This is considered a slower, cheaper service than UPS Ground. FedEx is not available.

Textbook Buyback

MBS Direct makes it easy to sell your used book through their buyback program. Books with markings and highlighter are acceptable.

To sell your books, visit the online Francis Parker MBS Bookstore or call MBS Direct at 1-800-325-3252.

To sell your books online, click on “Sell My Books.” Books you’ve purchased this year that are eligible for buyback will be listed on the screen; you will follow the prompts and continue to generate and finalize a quote. The quote will be emailed to you along with a pre-paid shipping label. MBS will mail a check directly to you within 2–4 weeks.


Please contact MBS Direct at 1-800-325-3252
