Book Voucher Program
A Book Voucher allows a student to use excess eligible aid to purchase books at the Campus Bookstore. The Voucher uses your incoming eligible financial aid which exceeds your total bill. The amount used on the Voucher is deducted from the excess aid. Please note – not all financial aid is available for Book Vouchers and not all students receiving financial aid are eligible.
Book Voucher Forms are available in front of the Financial Aid Office two weeks prior to the start of the semester. Book vouchers cannot be faxed or emailed.
TO COMPLETE A BOOK VOUCHER:
- Find the total cost of your books on the board outside the book store or through SIS. Please use prices for “NEW BOOKs” in the event used books are no longer available when your Voucher is approved. Enter the amount you are requesting on the line “Amount Requested”.
- If you have student loans make sure you have completed all your loan requirements. If you completed the requirements within the last week or turned in your signed award letter within the last week please attach a copy of each confirmation page to the Voucher.
- Complete Voucher fully and in ink and drop off the completed Voucher in Financial Aid in the black bin entitled “BOOK VOUCHERS.”
- After 2 full business days the Voucher will be available. Go to the book store to complete your book purchase.
- Book Vouchers will only be issued for the lesser of available eligible funds or the actual cost of the books.
- You will only receive a call from Financial Aid if your voucher is reduced or denied. Please do not call Financial Aid regarding your Voucher – instead check with the bookstore after 2 business days.
- Incomplete Vouchers will not be processed.
