Students with financial aid awards for Spring 2016 can purchase textbook and other required course materials against their excess financial aid–either online or in campus bookstores—from December 28, 2015 through January 28, 2016, 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, February 29 through March 22.
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.
**If you completed this form for Fall 2015, you do not need to resubmit the form. Any forms completed prior to Fall 2015 will need to be re-submitted for Spring 2016.
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.
