Book Credit – Using Financial Aid in the Campus Bookstore

Students who have financial aid left over after the costs for tuition and fees are covered will be able to use this credit at the campus bookstore. The book credit cannot be used anywhere online or through another bookstore.

To use the book credit, visit the bookstore with a copy of your schedule and Photo ID during the designated book credit dates and indicate that you will be using your book credit eligibility to cover the cost of books.

Note: Not all students are eligible for the book credit. If you have a bill after financial aid has been applied to your charges, you will not be eligible for the book credit. The book credit can only be used through the announced deadline each semester. For deadline information, please visit the campus bookstore.

Refund Checks

For those students who qualify, reimbursement funds are typically available four to six weeks after the start of classes. To request direct deposit, visit your myCommNet account. Under “Student Services” select “Registration and Payment,” and then click on “Direct Deposit Enrollment.” If you don’t request direct deposit, a check will be sent to your home. Make sure your address is up-to-date with the Registrar’s Office. All disbursements and refunds are handled by the Bursar’s Office.
