The Book Advance/ Voucher Program allows financial aid recipients who have financial aid funds remaining after the payment of tuition and fees to use the excess to purchase (or rent) books and supplies from the NCC Bookstore during the book advance/voucher period, which generally starts two (2) weeks prior to the beginning of the semester.
As long as you meet the eligibility requirements, your financial aid process is complete and you have authorized the use of your excess financial aid for bookstore charges via the NCC Authorization or Book Voucher Form, a book advance/voucher will automatically be set up for you. The book advance/voucher spending limit can be found on your Student Information System (SIS) account. You must show your NCC ID and a copy of your schedule at the bookstore when making your purchase.
Please note – not all financial aid funds may be available for the Book Advance/Voucher and not all financial aid recipients are eligible.
NCC Authorization and Book Voucher Forms to authorize the use of your excess financial aid for bookstore charges are available in the Financial Aid Office two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. NCC Authorization and Book Voucher Forms must be completed in ink and cannot be faxed or emailed.
TO UTILIZE THE BOOK ADVANCE/ VOUCHER PROGRAM:
Fill out an NCC Authorization or Book Voucher Form available in the Financial Aid Office.
Please visit the SIS login page. Select the Student tab, then Student Records, then Account Summary by Term, and then click on current semester, which will show Account Detail by Term.
Look at the Authorized Financial Aid Section under the Account Detail for term (Summer, Fall, Spring). The spending limit available for books/supplies shows as amount listed beside Account Balance net of Authorized Financial Aid (will be a negative number if there is enough financial aid available).
Financial aid recipients with a financial aid hold and who have financial aid funds remaining after the payment of tuition and fees may use the excess to purchase (or rent) books and supplies from the NCC Bookstore during the book advance/ voucher period by completing a Book Voucher Form in addition to the NCC Authorization Form.
If you completed the loan requirements within the last week or turned in your signed award letter within the last week, please allow at least two (2) full business days to view your spending limit available on SIS.
Financial Aid recipients interested in utilizing the Book Advance/Voucher Program during Summer semesters will need to complete a Book Voucher Form in addition to the NCC Authorization Form.
NCC Authorization Forms need to be completed one-time for the fall and spring semester each academic aid year.
Book Vouchers need to be completed each semester.
