Charging Bookstore Purchases to Your Student Account

As a student, merchandise at the Bookstore can be charged to your student account at any point during the quarter. Online 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.

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 made to your student account. For more information regarding your student account, visit the Student Business Office's website. Make a payment by visiting your Western Account Online.

The student is the primary account holder and a Release of Financial Information form must be completed to discuss financial information with other parties, including immediate family members.

Financial Aid

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. Visit the Student Business Office's "Forms" page to complete the Authorization to Apply Financial Aid Form.
