If you meet the eligibility requirements, the financial aid Book Charge program allows students to use up to $800 of your financial aid award to pay for books and supplies during designated times each semester. This may apply to you if you are renting textbooks from the Madison College bookstore.

This is an optional program, so if you decide not to use the Book Charge, your financial aid will disburse as normal.
