CBS will now offer book allowances maximum of $300 beginning Fall 2013 to students who meet the following criteria:
If you are eligible for the Pell Grant, register early, and have funds remaining after tuition/fees are deducted, the CBS Office of Financial Aid will process a book allowance for you. This book charge authorization is not part of your Pell Grant. It is a short term loan from CBS as a courtesy to help defray expenses until Pell Grant awards can be processed and may not cover the total cost of your books. Book allowances will be mailed the first week of classes. This allowance will be deducted from your Pell Grant award before refunds are made. If you wish to decline the book allowances you must do so in writing. If you are eligible for a loan or Pell Grant and did not register in time for a book allowance you must contact the Office of Financial Aid to see if you are eligible to have one processed.
