Direct Pay Book Charges

All main campus students, including students that are eligible for Pell Grant, who have registered for semester courses may charge up to $250.00 in books and necessary supplies at the Ferris Online 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 (including Pell Grant recipients) are not required to charge their textbooks at the campus bookstore, and may opt out of this option by purchasing their books at the vendor of their choice using out of pocket funds.

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 Online Bookstore. To make a change to this selection go the the Student Service Center. Changes will not be reflected until the following semester.
