Charge to Student Account

 Now more and more students are able to charge textbooks and supplies to their student account!

The benefits of charging to your student account is that it's easier to pay off everything when it is all in one place - tuition, textbooks, parking permit, etc - in one lump sum or in smaller monthly payments.  You can even use your financial aid to help pay it off!

Eligibility Requirements:

You can save time by calling the Bookstore to check your eligibility in advance, 786-4759

  • Your Student account must be in good standing with no financial holds
  • You must be registered for at least 3 credits through the Anchorage campus
  • You must be accepted as a degree-seeking student at the Anchorage campus
  • Student must bring a valid UAA ID with you at the time of purchase
  • Any exceptions to these rules MUST be pre-approved by Disbursement Office 786-1440, option 7

The Bookstore receives updated eligibility lists from Disbursement several times a week.  If you have only recently paid off old bills, or registered for classes late, it may take 2-3 days before you are added to the list and able to charge to your account.  

If your application to UAA hasn't finished processing or you haven't turned in all of the necessary paperwork (transcripts, GED certification etc) you will need to contact the Disbursement Office (786-1440, option 7) to request an exception to the policy.

How It Works:

  • Come to the bookstore in person with your current, UAA ID card within the designated charging dates (see Bookstore home page for current semester's dates) 
  • Shop for your textbooks and school supplies - up to $1,000 in textbooks and $50 in supplies
  • Rental textbooks are authorized for student account charges
  • Head to any register and let the cashier know that you want to charge to your student account
  • Pay your account off at the same time you pay for your tuition and other fees

Please keep in mind that charges are being placed on your student account and must be paid off on time to avoid late fees.  You can also sign up for a payment plan (before the payment deadline) to give you more time to pay it off.
