Book Voucher Allowance

Book Voucher Allowance

CBS will now offer book voucher allowances maximum of $500.00 beginning Fall 2017 to students who meet the following criteria:

  • Student must be eligible for financial aid (Pell and Loans) and have a credit balance on their account of $500.00 or more. This will include all FSA funds (Example: Pell and/or Student loans)
  • All financial aid documents must be completed and ready for disbursement 10 days prior to the first start of class 

If you are eligible for the financial aid, register early, and have funds remaining after tuition/fees are deducted, the CBS Office of Financial Aid will process a book voucher allowance for you. This book voucher authorization is not part of your financial aid. It is a short term loan from CBS as a courtesy to help defray expenses until financial aid funds can be processed and may not cover the total cost of your books. You will receive an email notifying you if you are eligible for a book voucher allowance. You can only use the book voucher in the CBS online book store and the total amount used will be deducted from your financial aid award before any excess refunds are made. If you wish to decline the book voucher allowance you must do so in writing. If you are eligible for Pell Grant or student loans and did not register in time for a book voucher allowance you must contact the Office of Financial Aid to see if you are eligible to have one processed.
