Loans and the Bookstore:
If your private loan funds and/or other sources of financial aid exceed your direct costs for the semester (tuition and fees), Student Accounts will automatically send loan information to the bookstore. You will need to show a photo I.D. to the bookstore at the time of purchase, and they will be able to see that you have a balance from loans that you can use.
If you using loan funds in the bookstore and later cancel your private student loan, drop your complete schedule prior to the first day of classes, or otherwise lose eligibility, you are immediately responsible for repayment of those funds to the college. This unpaid balance will result in records being on hold and may lead to us turning over your account to a collection agency.
Borrow smart. Tuition and fees may be a small dollar figure compared to the overall costs of attaining a higher education. While students may borrow loans up to the annual cost of attendance (tuition, fees, books, supplies, housing, food, transportation, miscellaneous expenses, etc.), a student is never required to borrow the maximum amount. If you only need funds for tuition and fees, borrow only that amount. Private loans must be repaid, and interest will accrue more quickly than you realize. Students should borrow smart, and borrow only what you need!
