Students who receive a Federal Pell Grant may be able to receive an advance of their financial aid to purchase books and supplies.

This advance will be paid directly to the student.

Students, who have not already signed up for the Direct Deposit, will receive the "book advance" in the form of a paper check. Students can
sign up for Direct Deposit for future financial aid refunds.
