Disbursement of Title IV Credit Balance - Books

Regulations require that certain Pell Grant eligible students be provided by the 7th day of classes a means to obtain or purchase required books and supplies. This provision is available only to students who have submitted all required title IV financial aid paperwork at least 10 days before the beginning of classes and who are anticipated to have a credit balance, and is subject to certain other conditions. The amount advanced (or books provided) to eligible students for such purchases is the lesser of:  the standard estimated book costs used in the school’s Cost of Attendance, or the student’s anticipated Title IV credit balance for the term (excluding Stafford Loans for first year- first time borrowers).  Determination of delivery of books or of the credit balance is determined by the school.

Tuition, books and fees are bundled and billed as a single charge each term. The cost of books are waived for students receiving the military tuition rate. Books and supplies will be mailed prior to the start of classes to registered students who have submitted all required FA paperwork.
