NOVA bookstores will be notified early in the morning and early afternoon each day during the week as new e-signed forms are received via the dashboard.  Complete the form NOW to ensure that the bookstore will have the authorization to use financial aid when you are ready to purchase your books.

Before you use your financial aid for campus bookstore purchases, you check the list below.

  • Are you enrolled in classes?
  • Do you have an approved Financial Aid award large enough to cover tuition, fees and books?
  • Do you have a NOVACard with your student ID number displayed on the front?
  • Is your account free of holds?

If the answer to any of the above is “no”, then you should immediately check your MyNOVA Account and consult your local campus. Application for NOVACard is available in the following link — NOVACard Link
