Getting Your Books

Book Advances

Funds are advanced to you to purchase your books. The amount given is a pre-set limit that cannot exceed the financial aid award after your tuition is paid. Book advances are issued about a month before the beginning of a term. You may view your book advance online.

If your tuition and fees and the amount you used to purchase your books exceed your award at your current enrollment level, you will be sent a bill.

In some cases your current enrollment might have exceeded the College Prep credit limit of 30 credit hours that is covered by federal assistance, and thus your fees might have exceeded the award applied to your costs.

Book advances not paid by the due date will be considered delinquent and a $20 late fee will be assessed.

You need to resolve all financial obligations in order to register for any future terms.
