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 credit balance will be eligible to purchase books and supplies at the campus bookstore from Monday, November 16, 2020 – Wednesday, January 20, 2021. The amount allowed will be capped at the amount of the estimated credit balance, not to exceed $1,000.

Financial aid for Spring 2021 will begin to show authorized on student accounts beginning of November 2020.

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 Spring 2021 refunds from the Cashier’s Office will be issued Friday, January 29, 2021.

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