College Illinois is once again open for business. The state's troubled pre-paid tuition program had previously stopped selling contracts amid reports of financial mismanagement.
As college courses wrap up for the year, college students are trying to get the best prices for their used textbooks.
Some textbooks will be updated, and students will not get a penny for those. Others may be damaged or missing portions. Nothing for those either.
Increasingly, students are going online to buy and sell or opting for a cheaper upfront cost for an electronic version of the course material.
