Book Allowance Information

If you are eligible for the Pell Grant, register early, and have funds remaining after tuition/fees are deducted, Eastern Florida’s Financial Aid office will process a book charge authorization for you. This book charge authorization is not an addition to your Pell Grant. It is a short term loan from EFSC as a courtesy to help defray expenses until Pell Grant awards can be processed and may not cover the total cost of your books. Book charge authorizations are available at campus bookstores on the dates listed below. This charge will be deducted from your Pell Grant award before refunds are made. If you do not use this authorization, it will be voided before refunds are made. In some cases, an aid package that does not include a Pell Grant will have an excess of funds after tuition and fees are paid, and a book voucher can be issued in those cases. If you are eligible for a loan or Pell Grant and did not register in time for a book charge authorization, you must contact your campus Financial Aid Office to see if you are eligible to have one processed. When redeeming a Book Allowance, you can do so in person at all four campus bookstores and also with online purchases made through the college's bookstore.
