WHAT IS BOOK CHARGING?


Book charging allows you to add the cost of your books, up to $600, purchased at the Normandale Textbook Depot to your tuition and fees bill. It is an interest-free line of credit that allows you to wait until after the semester has started to pay for your books. Financial Aid applicants and students who are enrolled in the Nelnet Payment Plan may be able to use book charging.

Book Charging is not grant money or additional financial aid!
 It is like a credit card that allows you to "charge" the cost of your books, up to $600, to your tuition and fees account. You are responsible for the payment of the cost of your books, either through financial aid in excess of your tuition and fees, or your own payment.

Summer Book Charging is available Monday, May 11 through Wednesday, June 10.


WHO IS ELIGIBLE?


Students become eligible to use Book Charging service one of two ways:

Students who have a past due balance at Normandale or are on academic or financial aid suspension are not eligible to use the book charging service. Your eligibility may change if you are suspended from financial aid or your account becomes past due after your book charging eligibility was originally determined.

Summer Book Charging is available Monday, May 11 through Wednesday, June 10.


Students who have not used Book Charging by this time but plan to use excess financial aid to pay for books will have to wait until after aid disbursement on June 12th to access these funds. We recommend you use book charging if you are eligible.
