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. Refunds will be automatically processed for graduating students.
The Academic Books and Supplies account will be accepted for appropriate purchases at the University Bookstore, University Medical Bookstore and at the School of Architecture.
Visit a University Bookstore to purchase academic books and supplies. At checkout, present your UB Card to cashier and indicate you would like to use your Academic Books and Supplies account for the purchase.
If you have eligible Financial Aid funds listed on your “To Do” list in the HUB Student Center you can visit UB Card Services in 1Capen to add anticipated financial aid credit to your UB Card. Once purchases are made, this transaction will be reflected on your student account as Academic Books and Supplies.
