Students with financial aid awards for Fall 2015 can purchase books against their excess financial aid – either online or in campus bookstores – from August 10 through September 10, the 16-week (term) census date. A second book purchase period will be open for students who still have anticipated aid from two weeks before the second 8-week term through that term census date, October 7-29.
If you completed the online Bookstore Authorization form for the summer 2015, it will NOT remain valid for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016. The online Bookstore Authorization form for the 2015-2016 aid year will be available on July 10, 2015. If you previously completed the form for 2014-2015 (including Summer 2015), it must be resubmitted with a valid electronic signature.
Students wishing to purchase books on-line must complete and sign the Bookstore Authorization E-Form, via the Financial Aid Dashboard, prior to completing a purchase. Students enrolled or planning to enroll in later starting classes who desire to use their financial aid to purchase books must purchase during one of the two purchase periods; no additional accommodations will be made. The financial aid process must be complete and anticipated aid must be enough to cover tuition, fees and books. Files can have no negative holds.
