All college students should be prepared to pay for books and supplies when starting classes; however, because financial aid refunds start about four weeks into the semester, the campus bookstore and online bookstore allow students to purchase books and supplies on credit if financial aid is approved in advance.
In order to charge books and supplies, actual/anticipated aid must be more than enough to cover the cost of tuition and fees for the term.
A one-time FINANCIAL AID RELEASE (FAR) is required prior to charges being authorized. The FAR can be completed online. A link to the Bookstore/Financial Aid Release (FAR) is available on the Self-Service Student Center.
The STUDENT FINANCIAL AID (SFA) CHARGE PERIOD is for a limited time only and is subject to change from semester to semester. The SFA charge period begins at least 10 days before the semester starts and lasts for at least the first 9 days. The current bookstore SFA charge period is:
Fall 2012: August 3 - August 21
Spring 2013: January 4 - January 22
Summer 2013: May 6 - May 24
