Bookstore Credit Information

The Bookstore Credit is available to assist students with the purchase of books. It is a privilege offered by Armstrong for students who have completed all of their Financial Aid requirements by priority deadlines. A Bookstore Credit will be authorized for students who have grant, scholarship, or loan funds that exceed their charges. The maximum Bookstore Credit available is $500. Please note that if your balance increases after you have spent your Bookstore Credit, you will be held responsible for those funds. There are no Bookstore Credits available during flex terms.
