Students who need assistance with the cost of their books have the option to request a book advance. The book advance maximum is $500.00 per term with a limit of one (1) book advance per term. Students may submit a request for a book advance four (4) weeks prior to the start of their upcoming term.
To be eligible for a book advance, the requirements are as follows:
1. Loan(s) status is “Sent to Lender”
2. Enrolled in at least half-time status
3. No past due account balance
4. Total anticipated financial aid disbursements for the term is sufficient to pay tuition, fees, and the requested book advance.*
(*If tuition, fees, and the requested book advance exceeds anticipated financial aid disbursements, a lesser amount than the requested amount can be approved.)
Once a book advance is approved, you can expect to have funds sent to you based on your refund selection method within 3 - 5 business days.
