Order Textbooks With Your Student Account:

Bobcats, you now have the option to purchase textbooks through your student account!

 

When ordering your books online, be sure to select "Payment Type: Student Account." Students should have an available credit of up to $700 to attribute to textbook purchases. If the textbooks are ordered AND packed by the Campus Store more than 10 days before classes start, the cost of the books will be deducted from your financial aid refund (if applicable). If ordered 10 days or less from the start of the semester, and the books have NOT been packed, the cost of the books will be charged directly to your student account and will show up on the next billing statement. The student will be responsible for ensuring the payment of any outstanding charges (if applicable). According to the Student Business Services website, all University charges posted to your student account are due by 4:00 PM Pacific Time on the payment deadline indicated on the monthly billing statement.

 

Textbooks purchased through Textbook Reservations via the student account are also eligible for the Deferred Payment Plan (if all other requirements are met). To learn more, visit the SBS Deferred Payment Plan page.

 

For more information regarding your Student Account, visit the Financial Aid page. To check your Billing Statements, visit ePay.
