Can I use financial aid to buy my books?

As a Federal Pell Grant recipient, you are eligible to obtain your textbooks for the semester at Sun Devil Campus Stores and have your book charges billed to your student account (in-store purchases only). Login to My ASU to view your financial aid awards.

Please follow these steps to take advantage of this option:

  1. Take your schedule of classes with you to a Sun Devil Campus Store.
  2. Find the books for your classes.
  3. Bring your books to the cashier.
  4. Present your ASU ID and indicate you have a Pell Grant.
  5. Your book charges will be applied to your ASU account.

This payment option is available during specific times at the start of each semester. See the financial aid calendar for details.

If you were not awarded a Pell Grant, the bookstore will accept the following payment methods both online or in the store:

  • American Express
  • Discover
  • Gift Card
  • MasterCard
  • Sun Dollars
  • Visa
