Disbursement of books and supplies policy for
Pell eligible students
All Pell eligible undergraduates who
have been awarded financial aid at least 10 days before the beginning of the term,
who have registered for courses, and whose awarded aid is in excess of charges
billed by the university for those courses, may use their excess funds to
purchase books and supplies. Students should be aware that
enrolling at a lesser status than the enrollment status used to award the aid
may require the award be adjusted to match the new enrollment status,
which will lower any excess aid amount. Changes to enrollment status after the disbursement of funds may result
changes in eligibility for financial aid. Changes in eligibility can result in the return of aid funds, which can reduce a student's financial aid award, and create a balance owed on a student's CU Denver account.
Enrolled CU Denver students
may charge up to $500 for books and supplies at the Tivoli Station Bookstore. For more
information, visit the Tivoli Station webpage for the
Denver Charge Program.
If you were awarded a Federal
Pell Grant award at least 10 days prior to the start of the term and have not

please contact the Financial
Aid & Scholarships Office.
