A portion of your financial aid refund may be used in the University of West Georgia Bookstore.

You may use up to $750 of your financial aid refund at the University of West Georgia Bookstore as a Bookstore to the Rescue credit. To determine if you have a financial aid refund and determine the amount you are eligible to charge at the Bookstore, please follow the directions below.

  • Do I have funds available to use at the Bookstore?
    1. Log onto your myUWG
    2. Click on the BanWeb tab
    3. Click on "Student Services & Financial Aid"
    4. Click on "Financial Aid"
    5. Click on "Student Breakdown Bill"
    6. Review your breakdown bill to see if you have an estimated refund amount. If you have an estimated refund of below $750, then you may charge only the amount of your estimated refund at the Bookstore. If you have an estimated refund of $750 or more, then you are eligible to charge $750 at the Bookstore. ***If your refund is generated because you paid by credit card, cash, or check, you may be ineligible for Bookstore to the Rescue Credit. Also, refunds generated from private loans cannot be used until the funds arrive at UWG.
