Process for Purchasing Books/Supplies with Financial
Paper vouchers are not required to purchase books/supplies for students who have been awarded federal financial aid (i.e. Pell Grant and/or Federal Direct Student Loans, as well as scholarships). This is a real time process that will determine the exact amount a student has available for purchases. Purchases not related to your educational expenses or any missuse of Financial Aid funds could result in a restriction of funds and/or referral to the Dean of Students for possible disciplinary action.
NOTE: Course Schedule changes after books have been purchased may adjust
your aid resulting in a balance that you owe on your student account.
Please follow these steps:
- Check your eResources account to determine if you have been awarded financial aid and/or a scholarship.
- Click on the link titled "Available Financial Aid for Bookstore". This link will provide the amount of aid that can be used to purchase books/supplies.
You are required to present your current JJC student photo ID and a copy of your full course schedule to the bookstore in order to purchase your books/supplies. JJC Student Photo I.D.s can be obtained or renwed at Photo I.D. Services located in the Campus Center.
