Charging Bookstore Purchases to Your Student Account

The Charge-It purchasing program will allow you to charge purchases made at the Western AS Bookstore to your student account.

As a student, merchandise at the Bookstore can be charged to your student account 30 days before and after the first day of classes each quarter.

Each student has a $600.00 charging limit per quarter. This is not a revolving line of credit as it does not get replenished when your Student Account is paid.

The Student Business Office (SBO) processes all charges and the balance will appear on your account the following business day. Payments can be made in person at the Student Business Office (Old Main 110) or through the SBO website. Click here to navigate to the SBO site to find current rates associated with making payments and additional information and resources.

If utilizing financial aid to pay for bookstore charges on your student account, you must complete the Authorization to Apply Financial Aid Form on the SBO website prior to charging. Charges posted to the student account after financial aid has been distributed must be paid by the student directly to the student account through the SBO. Follow this link to complete the Authorization to Apply Financial Aid Form.

On-line and in-person purchases may be charged to your student account. For your protection you must have your Student ID card with you to apply in-store purchases to your student account.
