Charging Bookstore Purchases to Financial Aid

You may purchase books and supplies with financial aid that remains after tuition and fees are deducted. While you do not need a bookstore voucher to use your aid for purchases, you will be required to complete a Bookstore Authorization Form. For your convenience, this form can be accessed and completed via your myTyler Financial Aid To-Do list. Upon your successful completion of this form, you will be able to visit the Tyler bookstore during the timeframes below with your Student ID number and your schedule of classes.

Semester Attending: Fall 2021
Book Charges: August 16–September 7

You should plan to purchase all books and supplies during these times. There will be no book charges after the date listed above. If the books you need are on back-order, you should speak with bookstore management for special arrangements.

If you want to drop a class and return books, you must return your books before you drop the class. You must present your original receipt and do your return by the deadlines listed above.

Census Dates

The term "Census Date" refers to the point at which your enrollment is locked for financial aid purposes. At this point in the term, credit hours are locked and financial aid for the term is adjusted to reflect the official number of enrolled credits.
