Bookstore Credit

IF YOU RECEIVE A FINANCIAL AID REFUND, A PORTION OF IT MAY BE USED IN THE UNIVERSITY BOOKSTORE

You will now be able to utilize a portion of your financial aid refund as a bookstore credit. You may only charge up to $750 of your refund.  If your refund is less than $750, then you may not exceed your refund amount.

*Note: Bookstore Credit is only available during the limited posted dates each semester. Check The Scoop for dates.

To participate in this program, you will need to take the following steps:

1. Log onto your myUWG portal page and click on the Banweb tab.
a. Click on Student Services and Financial Aid
b. Click on Financial Aid
c. Click on Book Store Permission
d. Wait 24 hours

2. Go to the University Bookstore
a. Tell the cashier you are participating in the “Bookstore to the Rescue” program
b. Present your valid student ID.

Any adjustment to your financial aid, course schedule, meal plan or residence hall may cause you to owe funds back to UWG.  Students who make a payment with a check, cash or credit card are not eligible to participate in the Bookstore to the Rescue program even if they are receiving financial aid.
