Charging Books at eCampus | Western Technical College

Charging Books at eCampus

Financial aid refunds will be disbursed sometime during the 5th week of classes. We allow students who meet certain criteria to charge their books and supplies at Western’s Official Online Bookstore, eCampus.

Who will be allowed to charge?

Students who:

  1. Have been awarded financial aid and have accepted financial aid from Western’s Financial Aid Resources and Planning Services, and
  2. Will have money left over after any remaining account balance is deducted from the financial aid, and
  3. Have granted Western permission to take the required books/supplies charges out of their financial aid.

What can I charge?

If you meet the requirements, you can charge books and supplies up to the amount of financial aid LESS any student account balance. If required books and supplies cost MORE than the financial aid funds left over, you will be required to pay the difference when the books/supplies are purchased. (Federal Direct Loan awards will NOT be included in the amount allowed to charge against if Entrance Counseling and the Master Promissory Note (MPN) have NOT been completed.)
