Summer 2017: purchase books/supplies using financial aid

Students with financial aid awards for summer 2017 can purchase books against their excess financial aid–either online or in campus bookstores—from May 8, 2017 through June 1, 2017.

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 this 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. If you have completed this form previously in the 2016-2017 academic year (fall 16 or spring 17), your form is on file in your account, and you do not need to complete the form.

Book Purchase Period

  • First day to purchase books/supplies using financial aid online: May 8, 2017
  • Last day to purchase books/supplies using financial aid: June 1, 2017

You may place your on-line order 24 hours after completing the authorization e-form or on the first business day after completing the e-form, if later. Search the  online bookstore for the textbooks and course materials required for your NOVA Online courses.
