Agency and Financial Aid Charges
To ensure a successful start to a semester, you should have all required textbooks on or before the first day of class. Since Financial Aid is not disbursed before classes start, you should plan to purchase your books from your own funds. In the event you are unable to purchase your books from your own funds and your Pell and State Grant exceeds your tuition and fee charges, books may be charged against your Pell and State Grant, according to the guidelines below.
- A South Central College Student ID card is required for all charges.
- Agency and Grant Charges are allowed during a 9 day period each term (usually 4 business days before the term begins and the first five (5) days of the term).
- Charges may not be done through our online ordering system, please order your textbooks as a reservation for pick up in the bookstore.
- Agency Authorization Voucher must be on file in the bookstore, before you are allowed to charge. Agencies include the Rehabilitation Services (RS), Minnesota Valley Action Council (MVAC), Post Secondary Education Opportunities (PSEO), Minnesota Workforce Center, Minnesota Department of Economic Security Trade Act Training (TAA), and Veterans Benefits (VETS). Some restrictions apply as to what items can be charged.
