Spring 2023 Financial Aid Bookstore Authorizations will be available January 3 – February 20.
How do I use financial aid to pay for bookstore purchases?
Some students have enough money remaining from grant, loan and scholarship funds (after tuition and fees are paid) to charge books and supplies, and some do not.
If you are trying to charge books to your financial aid, keep the following in mind:
- The period that students may charge books for each semester is limited and changes each semester.
- The amount you will have to charge is based on how many classes you are currently enrolled in. Available aid will depend on your enrollment level of financial aid eligible classes.
- There is a $1,500 maximum charging limit (per semester).
- Book and supply charges should be limited to necessities. Only books and materials for classes required for your degree and/or certificate are allowed to be charged.
- Students not meeting satisfactory academic progress standards may not charge books to their financial aid.
- Please log in to your MyGCC Student Account and verify that you have enough aid to charge books before going to the bookstore.
- Complete the Bookstore Authorization checklist item in your Student Center To Do List (this is required for each semester you will use remaining funds at the bookstore)
- Select financial aid as your payment option when ordering online.
- Have your class schedule and student ID number.
Only students may order online and make in store purchases for required books and supplies from the Germanna Bookstore. Online pick up orders require the student be present and a photo ID is required.
