Financial Aid/Third Party Authorization

Charging textbooks and other supplies against financial aid

Financial aid charging starts the Wednesday before classes start.  Please bring your class schedule and your student id.  You are welcome to charge against your financial aid if, after taking out tuition and fees, you have excess funds available.  It takes 24 hours after registering for classes or receiving paperwork from a third party to process paperwork and have that information to the bookstore.  You are welcome to call 701-224-5453 and place your order and we can ship it to you using your financial aid.

Students who are in good standing and have a completed financial aid file have the ability to charge books against their excess financial aid.  Excess financial aid is considered to be your total accepted (completed) financial aid less your student account balance.
  • Bookcharging against excess financial aid start and end dates can be located on the Academic Calendar.
  • Students must be registered in the total credits financial aid is based on and have accepted (completed) the financial aid process 24 hours prior to attempting to charge books.
  • Students covered by a third party must also allow 24 hours prior to charging books to a third party.
  • You are welcome to call 701-224-5453 and place your order and books can be shipped based on the availability of excess financial aid and third party authorization
Note:  If Financial Aid or Third Party Authorization is NOT available in time to purchase your books, you must plan accordingly for that expense.   Students may opt out of this option to charge books and supplies at the BSC Bookstore by purchasing books and supplies elsewhere utilizing their own resources or utilizing their excess financial aid refund, once those funds becomes available.
