Bookstore Charge Dates

If purchasing books in person, the charge dates for Student Financial Aid purchases begins August 9 - August 27, 2013. You do not need a paper voucher to charge books IF you have a Financial Aid Release (FAR) form on file and your aid is complete. You can check your Student Self-Service to view awards, schedule, and bill for tuition. If your aid amount is larger than your tuition amount AND you have a FAR on file with the Financial Aid Office, you are eligible to charge books. You will have to have an official copy of your schedule and a photo ID (such as a driver’s license).

Your Student Financial Aid can be used in the bookstore or on line at the KCTCS Distance Learning site to purchase your textbooks. Additionally, Financial Aid can be used to purchase any other items in the bookstore, such as a lap top, printer, software, bookbags, clothing, supplies and more!

The Bookstore also accepts personal check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Paypal, and American Express.
