Our Best Answer Can I use my financial aid to pay for my books?
Financial aid is first disbursed to your student account and applied to your tuition, fees, room, board, and any other allowable charges. If you have more financial aid than necessary to pay these charges, you may have a credit balance which will be refunded to you. Your refund can be used to buy or rent your textbooks. However, if you’re not receiving a refund you’ll need to obtain your textbooks with personal funds.
Registration Deposit (formerly known as EZ Deposit) is a convenient way to make a deposit to your CrimsonCard or other current campus ID before the start of a semester so you can have funds readily available to purchase textbooks, course materials, and other needed items. When you are registering for classes, you can select the Registration Deposit option in the "Optional Services" section.
Your Registration Deposit will be billed to your student account where it may be paid, if eligible, with financial aid, scholarships, grants, or any other accepted form of payment. Find out more on our website.
