Book Store Voucher Policy
Students may apply for a bookstore voucher for a given term up to a maximum amount of $350.00 if their financial aid exceeds their charges for the term, so that they may purchase books and supplies in advance of their actual financial aid disbursement (which occurs 4 weeks into each term).

Eligibility Requirements:

  • All required financial aid documents have been submitted to the Financial Aid Office
  • Student has no outstanding balance due to Bryn Athyn College
  • Student has filed the FAFSA and has financial aid resources that exceed their charges for the term they are requesting voucher
  • Student is registered for classes

How it Works:

Temporary COVID relief policy: If a student is approved for a bookstore voucher, the approved amount will be refunded in a paper check form. Due to our current process, approved funds may need to be sent directly to a student’s address on file, so please allow adequate time for check processing and mail delivery.
