Book Vouchers

​​​​Book vouchers, which are electronic, are available only during book voucher periods. Their availability depends on when the student’s financial aid is completed and posted in the system. Students who are eligible for book vouchers and whose aid is completed by established deadlines should go directly to the bookstore, bringing their schedules and student IDs.

Note: When a book voucher expires, a student's account is adjusted to reflect the actual amount he or she spent at the bookstore using the book voucher. If a student's source of outside funding (i.e., grants, loans, third-party contracts) does not pay, it is the student's responsibility to pay this charge.

 ​Frequently Asked Questions

What is a book voucher?

Book vouchers are given to students who receive funding (i.e.,​ grants, loans, scholarships, third-party contracts) that exceeds their bills.

When are they issued?

Book vouchers typically are issued one week before the fall and spring semesters and on the first day of the semester in winter and summer.

How much may I receive?

Book voucher amounts are determined by the number of credits a student takes and how much excess funding is available. The maximum amount a student may receive is:

12 or more credits — $1,000
11 or fewer credits — $750

If students require a larger book voucher than the maximum amount, they must see someone in the Business Office.

How do I find out whether I will receive a voucher?

During book voucher periods, students may find out their book voucher amounts by checking their student accounts online or by contacting the Business Office.

How do I check my student account online?

Students should log in to the Rowan College Portal, click the Self-Serv icon at the top right, click Student & Registration Records, click Student Account and click Account Summary by Term.

How do I obtain my voucher?

All Rowan College book vouchers are sent to the bookstore electronically. If students have a book voucher charge on their accounts during a book voucher period, they may go directly to the Rowan College bookstore with photo ID and their student schedules. If they do not have book vouchers and are eligible, they should see the Business Office for additional assistance.

Do I need to pick up something from Financial Aid and take it directly to the bookstore, or can it all be done online?

Students do not need to pick up anything or obtain a physical voucher. Book vouchers are sent electronically to the bookstore. 

May I purchase school supplies, such as notebooks and day planners, at the bookstore with the allotted amount in my book voucher?

Yes, students may use their Financial Aid book vouchers to purchase school supplies at the bookstore.
