Paying for Books/Supplies with Financial Aid

If you have excess funds in your financial aid account, you can use those excess funds to purchase books, supplies, and even a laptop during the time frame allotted for financial aid, as you cannot use your financial aid in the bookstore the entire school year. For Fall 2024, you can use your available financial aid funds beginning Monday, August 5, 2024. 

If you charge amounts that exceed how much extra financial aid you have on your account, you will be responsible to pay that excess amount.

If the books you need are on backorder, please speak with the bookstore management for special arrangements. If you want to drop a class and return books, you must return your books before you drop the class. You must show your receipt and do your return by the designated time.
