Can I get financial aid to cover the cost of my books?
First - check you schedule/Student Data Sheet to see if you have classes with a Resource Fee; the cost is already included in your charges. Make sure you understand how the online resources work. You should not need to buy a book for classes with online resources. Please ask questions if you do not understand!
If you have enough financial aid to cover the costs of your tuition and fees and other institutional charges, and have a credit balance on your account, you can use a Book Voucher at any MACC Bookstore to purchase your textbooks and supplies.
Book Vouchers are generally available one week prior to the first day of classes and can be used until your aid is credited to your student account. During that time period, you can take your class schedule to the Bookstore at any campus to find your books and supplies and charge them to your student account to be paid with your financial aid. You must be present with your student I.D. to use the Book Voucher system. Only the student may charge his or her own books. Restrictions may apply.
FALL BOOK VOUCHERS BEGIN: August 15, 2016
You may use a book voucher until financial aid is disbursed to your student account, which will be September 21 - if your financial aid is fully processed and awarded on time. If you completed the financial aid process late, you may use a book voucher beyond this date - up to the actual date your financial aid is disbursed.

Best wishes for a most successful semester!
