Direct Pay Book Charges

Main campus students who have registered for semester courses may charge up to $500.00 in books and necessary supplies at the James L. Lundberg Bookstore during specific dates each semester. Book charges will be added to their student billing account, provided the student does not owe a prior balance for books. Any bookstore charge balance must be paid by the end of the semester for charges to be allowed the following semester.

Students MUST HAVE THEIR STUDENT BULLDOG ID in order to use this privilege. They can select their books and supplies and take them to the cash register/terminal at the front of the bookstore to charge to their student account. Following are the scheduled dates that the Direct Pay Charge is available:

Students who receive financial aid and have restricted the University from making payment toward charges other than tuition, fees, room and board will not be permitted to charge books at the Lundberg Bookstore. To make a change to this selection go the the Student Service Center. Changes will not be reflected until the following semester.
