Financial aid recipients who are expected to have funds remaining after tuition costs are covered can use the excess to purchase or rent books and to purchase supplies from the Owens Bookstore using a book voucher. Students can only use the book voucher for books and supplies which are required for their education. This includes the purchase of one computer, laptop, or tablet for educational purposes during the student’s entire academic career. Students are expected to purchase required textbooks prior to purchasing other eligible items. Students are reminded that the book voucher may include student loan funds; therefore, students should consider their purchases carefully.
The book voucher process works as follows.
Book vouchers will be available during the following periods. All purchases must be made during the book voucher period, including purchases for courses which begin later in the term.
For students whose Satisfactory Academic Progress status is SAP Warning or SAP Probation, or who are near the maximum limit, the current semester’s grades must be reviewed before a book voucher can be issued for the next semester.
