Disbursement of books and supplies policy for
Pell eligible students
All Pell eligible students 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 that the award be adjusted to match the new enrollment status,
which will lower any excess aid amount. Students should also be aware that
changes in their enrollment status after the disbursement of funds may result
in lowered or no eligibility for financial aid funds and thus the student may
owe the university a return of some or all of the funds disbursed for books and

Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations
The Higher Education Act of 1965
as amended (HEA) suspends aid eligibility for students who have been convicted
under federal or state law of the sale or possession of drugs, if the offense
occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving
federal student aid (grants, loans, and/or work-study). If you have a
conviction(s) for these offenses, call the Federal Student Aid Information
Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or review the FAFSA
Facts resource sheet.
If you have lost federal student
aid eligibility due to a drug conviction, you can regain eligibility if you
pass two unannounced drug tests conducted by a drug rehabilitation program that
complies with criteria established by the U.S. Department of Education.

impact of a drug conviction on federal student aid eligibility see the Office
