NECC allows students to use excess financial aid, after tuition and fees, to purchase their textbooks and supplies at the NECC Bookstore with proper authorization*. If the student’s financial aid, after subtracting the costs of tuition and fees, creates a credit on the student’s account, the student will be allowed to charge the purchase of their books and other educational supplies against that credit.
A standard amount of $175 per course is allowed, but if the student confirms that books for his/her course costs more and if the student has sufficient credit, the amount of the voucher can be increased by the financial aid office. Any books and other educational supplies purchased will be charged to their student account and dpaid once financial aid disburses.
Eligible students will receive an email instructing them to go to the NECC Book Store to use their Voucher. Book Vouchers for Spring 2014 will be available:
