Financial Aid Book Charge

The Financial Aid Book Charge Program allows you to charge the books and/or supplies you buy for Madison College classes against your financial aid award. The Book Charge Program is completely optional; you are not required to use it. If you decide not to use the program, your financial aid will disburse as normal. 

If you meet the eligibility requirements outlined below and choose to use the Book Charge program, you must purchase the books at a Madison College bookstore, either in person or online within the dates listed below. You can still buy your books elsewhere, but you cannot use the Book Charge program for those purchases.

  • Book Charge Dates

    You can only use the Book Charge within the dates listed below. If you purchase items outside of those dates, you must pay for them on your own.

    Fall 2016: August 22, 2016 - September 9, 2016

    If You Meet the Requirements

    If you meet all the eligibility requirements and it is within the book charge dates, you will have a Hold Service Indicator on your account called "FA Bookstore Charge Sent," which will include the dollar amount you are able to charge. The maximum amount you may be eligible to charge is $800.

    • Online - Order your textbooks online. If you order books online, you can have them shipped directly to you or pick them up at any MATC campus bookstore. Be sure to select Financial Aid for your Payment Type and enter your student ID number for the Account Number.

    OR

    • In Person - You can go to the Madison College bookstore with your student ID (OneCard) and your class schedule.

    After you charge your books towards your financial aid, the charges will appear in your myMadisonCollege account. Once your financial aid begins disbursing, it will be applied to your balance due. 

  • Return Books

    If you charged your books towards your financial aid, you may return them according to the bookstore return policy. If the book meets the return criteria, a credit will be applied to your myMadisonCollege account. Books cannot be returned for cash.
