Purchasing Textbooks with Financial Aid

NCMC students are given options to purchase course materials with the use of financial aid before the scheduled refund dates. In order to purchase course materials using financial aid, students must be awarded financial aid and have all requested documents submitted before they can utilize the funds for the course material purchase(s).

Students are only given the option to purchase course materials with financial aid if the student has enough funds to cover their direct costs to the college (Tuition, fees, housing, etc.) and has a remaining credit on their account.  Any course material purchases that the student then makes may not exceed the amount of credit that they have on their account.

Students attending NCMC classes may purchase books with financial aid prior to receiving the aid via refund through an advance book charge available at the Campus Store. Book charges are available two weeks prior to the start of fall classes (one week prior to the start of spring/summer classes) and one week after the course has begun.  Students must have a Pirate Gold OneCard (student ID card) to purchase textbooks with financial aid at the Campus Store.

Students are notified of their options to purchase books via their Financial Aid Offer and on the NCMC website.

Opt-Out Process for Book Purchases

Students eligible for Federal Pell Grants and/or Federal Student Loans may opt-out of the advance book charge process and receive a portion of their Federal Financial Aid to purchase course materials.
