Bronco Bookstore Financial Aid/Student Accounts Charging Program

What is the Bookstore Financial Aid Charging Program?
The Bookstore Charging Program is a new service that will allow students who receive financial aid to have course materials purchased through the Bookstore charged to their student account against pending aid disbursements. Eligible purchases can be made with your Bronco ID card.

Benefits of the Bookstore Charging Program
This program will allow students to obtain required course materials and begin doing assignments while waiting for financial aid awards or other sources of funding. The intention is to make it easy and convenient for students awaiting aid disbursements to get their materials at the start of classes.

Who is eligible to participate in the program?
Currently enrolled CPP (regular university only, not Extended University) students registered in greater than zero units who have been awarded financial aid that has not yet been disbursed may choose to use this program.

What items are allowed to be charged for this program?
Books and supplies such as pens, pencils, scantrons, or other designated educationally related supplies are eligible for the program. Food items, clothing, gifts and computers are not included.

What is the limit to the amount that can be charged?
There is a maximum of $500 of usable funds per semester.

What is the process for charging items?
Student charges in the Bookstore for authorized purchases will be added to the student's account and paid when the financial aid funds are disbursed. 
PLEASE NOTE that the student's financial aid package must exceed their financial obligation to the university for the current semester in order to qualify for the book charging program.

Are the Bookstore charges the first charges to be paid on the student's account?
When financial aid is disbursed, the sequence of payments will be:

  • Tuition & Fees
  • Mandatory Campus Fees
  • Housing
  • Course material charges

When will the Bookstore balance need to be paid?
The outstanding balance for Bookstore purchases in a current semester must be paid before a student can access this process in a future semester. A hold will be placed on the student account for unpaid balances, preventing class enrollment in the following semester. 


  • You must authorize the Bookstore in writing to participate in the process. Check your MyCPP account for payment due dates or to determine if your Financial Aid (if applicable) will cover the charges.
  • You will be held responsible for full payment for your textbooks if you become ineligible for Financial Aid or if your aid is not sufficient to cover your account balance as well as for changes in enrollment status, or withdrawal from the university.
  • You are responsible for all Bronco Bookstore charges incurred after financial aid funds have disbursed and you have received a refund either by direct deposit or check.
  • Failure to pay all charges on your Student Account will prevent you from registering for future courses and a hold will be placed on all your academic records.
