Opt-Out of bookstore credit option
If a student chooses to "opt out" of the bookstore credit, then the student needs to complete the "Request to Opt-Out of Bookstore Credit" form located at the Cashier’s window of the Business Office one week before the start of the semester. These authorizations will be in effect as long as they are active in Banner.
Please note the "opt out" option does NOT allow you to receive your financial aid Pell Grant refund early. The first set of refunds of any given semester are sent to students approximately 48 days after the semester begins.
