How to use your Financial Aid in Acquiring your Books ( AKA Charging Books/ Book Voucher Process)

ASUN degree-seeking students who have adequate financial aid awards on their student account will be able to charge their eligible books and supplies against their financial aid awards. Access will begin one week before the start of the term and end at 4:30 p.m. CST on the last business day of the second week of term. Financial aid will cover those charges, up to $500 of your accepted aid balance. If your order exceeds your financial aid and/or if you are renting a title, you will need another form of payment to cover the remaining balance and/or secure your rental.
