Students who are registered for the upcoming term will be allowed to charge up to $750 in bookstore purchases, including bus passes, to their student account.
These bookstore accounts are intended for students who have excess financial aid funds to cover their tuition, fees, AND their books or supplies. If you don’t have enough aid to cover all bookstore purchases and your bookstore charges create a balance due on your account, you will need to pay for those charges in accordance with your statement due dates. Please contact Student Financial Services before you purchase books, if you need to discuss payment options.
Be sure to plan ahead and purchase all books, bus passes, and supplies before the scheduled cut off dates listed below, including any books required for courses that start midterm, as you will be unable to charge anything to your student account after each term’s cut-off date.
Due to the financial aid cycle, you can only charge expenses to your bookstore account during the following specific periods.

Last Day to Charge Web Orders to a Student Account: September 6th
