If the entire balance in the Academic Books and Supplies Account is not used by the end of the academic year it will be refunded to your Student Account.
You do not need to clear your “To Do” list. You only need to take action if you want to use your eligible aid to obtain an Academic Books and Supplies account.
In the case where actual Financial Aid received is less than anticipated Financial Aid that was added to your “To Do” list in the HUB Student Center, you will be billed for any difference that you have already applied to your student account.
Campus Cash may be used for Bookstore purchases. Campus Cash may be applied to your UB Card with pre-paid funds.
The Academic Books and Supplies account can only be used for appropriate academic purchases. Retail or gift items are not included (i.e. sweatshirts, novelty items).
Any funds that are not used can be carried over to the following semester or you may request a refund by visiting UB Card Services in 1Capen. All remaining balances added by the student will be refunded to their Student Account in April. Funds added by a department are not refunded to the student.
The Academic Books and Supplies account will be accepted for appropriate purchases at the University Bookstore, University Medical Bookstore, School of Architecture and Greeks & Sneaks on Main Street.
You can use your Academic Books and Supplies funds in person or online at the University Bookstore. Online you would choose Academic Books and Supplies and in person you would present your UB Card and let the cashier know you are using Academic Books and Supplies. At the School of Architecture, and Greeks & Sneaks you would also present your UB Card for payment.
Prior to the start of the semester, an Academic Books and Supplies item will be added to your “To Do” list in the HUB Student Center if you have anticipated financial aid exceeding $100.00. You are eligible to add these funds to your Academic Books and Supplies account for purchases at the University Bookstore.
