Book Voucher

Students who have completed their FAFSA and TAP applications early, may be eligible for a book voucher. The student must fill-out a book voucher form which is available on-line (Business Office or Bursar’s website) or can be picked up from one of the following offices Business Office-Rm. B106, Bursar’s Office – Rm. B104, or Financial Aid-Rm. B112 every semester. The first book advance will be paid to students who clear their Financial Aid process at least two and half weeks before classes and do not choose the book voucher option. A book advance is disbursed by three methods: (1) a direct deposit to the student’s account (a direct deposit form has to be completed and returned to the Bursar’s Office); (2) by a credit to your CUNY debit card (applications are available on the Financial Aid website or CUNY portal) or (3) by a check which will be mailed to your address on file. The second book advance will be paid to all eligible students who clear their Financial Aid one day before the first day of classes and did not receive the first book advance.

The maximum amount for either the book voucher or book advance is $500.00. A deduction will be made later from the student’s Pell award for the actual purchase made at College Bookstore for the book voucher, or book advance amount paid to the student. In the event that the actual Pell grant is less than the estimated award, the student will be responsible for any purchases or advances not covered by Pell. Similarly, a student whose Pell award was reduced as a result of dropping courses will be required to repay the difference not covered by the estimated Pell grant.
