Book Voucher Information
If you are eligible for federal financial aid (Pell Grant, SEOG, Federal Direct Loan, and/or Parent PLUS Loan) and have funds remaining after tuition/fees are deducted, Eastern Florida’s Office of Financial Aid will authorize a book voucher for you. This book voucher is not an addition to your federal aid. It is a short term loan from EFSC as a courtesy to help defray expenses until your federal aid is disbursed. The cost of books and supplies purchased using a book voucher will be deducted from your federal financial aid before refunds are made.
Book vouchers are available at Campus Bookstores for eligible students during the dates listed below. If you are eligible for a book voucher, the amount will be displayed on your myEFSC landing page. You can use book vouchers to purchase books in person at all four campus bookstores or online using the bookstore's "Find Course Materials" search and purchase tool.

What You Need to Know About Book Vouchers
- For each part of term, vouchers must be used by the close of business on the last day indicated that vouchers are available at the bookstore in the chart above.
- Book vouchers may only be used to purchase books and certain classroom supplies. Restrictions may apply to electronic materials.
- The bookstore's hours are posted online. EFSC bookstores are open extended hours in January.
- Dropping or withdrawing from registered classes, never attending registered classes, or ceasing to attend registered classes may reduce the amount of financial aid for which you are eligible. This may result in a billing balance due to EFSC.
- To request an increase to your book voucher, provide written documentation to the Office of Financial Aid verifying that the cost of required textbooks for your registered classes exceeds the amount of your book voucher. The request for an increase can be submitted via the Student Document Dropbox within the myEFSC portal, via e-mail, or in person at a campus office through the close of business on the date listed in the above chart.
- Refunds for the return of any books and/or supplies purchased using book vouchers will be credited to your EFSC student billing account.
- In compliance with Florida Statute 1004.085, a listing of required textbooks for each course is available through the EFSC bookstore's "Find Course Materials" search tool. The listing includes the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) for each required textbook or other identifying information, the title, all authors listed, publishers, edition number, copyright date and published date.
