Early Book Program

Early Book Program for Fall 2020

  • August 10th-24th,
  • October 5th-9th

This program is only available for students that have excess financial aid. Depending on the balance of excess financial aid, you may have up to $800 available for the purchase of books and supplies.

To participate, please opt in to the Early Book Program when you log into your MyCSU account. You can also change your participation under the Students link/Financial Records tab/Early Book Program Authorization.

This early book program is only available to students who early register and have completed all financial aid requirements.

Please print your invoice in MyCSU under the Financial Records tab to see if you have a credit balance available to purchase books. Do not inquire about early books if you do not have a credit balance available. If you owe money on your invoice, you will not get a book credit.

Credit balances will be transmitted daily to the CSU bookstore so that your money is available for you to purchase the books you need. It takes at least 6 hours, but up to one day, for a new credit balance to be transferred to the bookstore. You are required to present your CSU ID at the bookstore when you purchase your books.
