Financial Aid Charging Books
Purchasing books at the LSC Store: If it appears that you have adequate financial aid funds to pay for not only your tuition and fees but also your books, you may charge your books against your financial aid in the LSC Store. Your name will appear on a list provided to the LSC store showing that you should have adequate funding to do so. When purchasing your books, please inform the LSC Store that you should have financial aid to cover the cost of your purchases. As the list contains only estimated amounts, you must sign an agreement stating that you are responsible for book charges if your financial aid does not cover the items charged.
You CANNOT charge your books against your financial aid once the drop/add period has ended.
Purchasing books online through the LSC Store: Online students can purchase their books online at the LSC Store. If you have adequate financial aid funds to pay for your tuition, fees and books, you may charge your books against your financial aid by listing “financial aid” as your form of payment when ordering your books online.
How to determine if you have enough financial aid to cover books:
Check your financial aid award letter under the appropriate credit level to determine the amount of grant funding you should receive. If you have borrowed a Stafford loan, add the amount you will receive for the semester to your grant funding amount. (You must have completed the Stafford Loan Online process and had your loan certified by the college before your loan will be considered as financial aid.) Check “Bills and Payment” in your e-services account to determine your charges.
Please be aware that the LSC Store list is strictly a guide for the LSC Store to use. You will be responsible for book charges if your financial aid does not cover the items charged.
