Book Charging

What is Book Charging?

Book charging is an interest-free line of credit that allows you to wait until after the semester has started to pay for your books.

It allows you to charge up to $600 to cover the cost of your books, supplies and technology, purchased at the Normandale Bookstore, to your tuition and fees bill. 

Book Charging is not grant money or additional financial aid! You are responsible for the payment of the cost of your books, either through the remainder of financial aid after your tuition and fees, or your own payment.
