Plan Ahead Now

The University of Montevallo now offers eligible students the opportunity to purchase books and supplies at the Barnes & Noble campus bookstore using their financial aid that has been applied to their accounts!

Students are encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) early and make certain every outstanding requirement is met in order to receive an award notification that will reflect authorized/pending aid. The authorized/pending aid can be viewed on Banner Self Service (BSS). Charges for tuition, fees, and room and board will also be on BSS as charges are placed on each account.

If a student’s aid is greater than their charges, there will be an estimated credit balance. Students with an estimated summer credit balance will be eligible to purchase books and supplies at the campus bookstore beginning Monday, April 12, 2021. The amount allowed will be capped at the amount of the estimated credit balance, not to exceed $1,000. The last date to charge and return books are as followed:

May and Full term – Last day to charge books and supplies: Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Last day to return any books: Wednesday, May 12, 2021

Summer I and Combined term – Last day to charge books and supplies: Wednesday, June 9, 2021

Last day to return any books: Friday, June 11, 2021

Summer II – Last day to charge books and supplies: Wednesday, July 14, 2021

Last day to return any books: Wednesday, July 21, 2021

Financial aid for Summer 2021 will begin to show authorized on student accounts beginning of April 2021.

Students reported as not attending will be dropped from classes and will not receive a refund.

Loans will not be reflected as authorized/pending until all requirements have been completed.

First-year borrowers will receive loan funds thirty (30) days after the term begins.

First Summer 2021 refunds from the Cashier’s Office will be issued as followed:

May and Full term – Friday, May 21, 2021

Summer I and Combined term – Friday, June 18, 2021

Summer II – Friday, July 23, 2021

Students are encouraged to budget wisely since the refund process will take place later than it has in previous terms.
