If you are in doubt about funds being available or have any questions concerning your Financial Aid, please call the Financial Aid office before placing an order to be charged to your Financial Aid.

Orders from students using Financial Aid payment cannot be processed until the financial award or loan funds have been posted by the Financial Aid office. The term posted means that your financial aid money is available to be used for SGSC Bookstore purchases. Only a portion of your Financial Aid may be available for bookstore purchases. The funds must be available for SGSC Bookstore use or order cannot be processed. Please check your "Self Service Banner" account before placing order. It is your responsibility to see that funds are available before placing an order.

Orders charged to Financial Aid accounts will only be processed during the period defined in the Important Dates section below. Any Financial Aid orders that are not able to be processed by the last day of this period will be canceled. You will be notified by e-mail and will need to order again using the debit/credit card payment method.

If your order exceeds posted Financial Aid funds available for use at the SGSC Bookstore, your order will be filled up to the limit of funds available and the balance of the order will be canceled. You will be notified by e-mail as to which items are canceled. You will need to re-order those items using the credit / debit card payment method. If you know there is not enough Financial Aid funds available to cover your order, you may submit two orders, one with Financial Aid payment method and another with the credit card payment method.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS: How to get a refund...

Remember all refunds require the presentation of a South Georgia State College sales receipt.
To receive a full refund on books that you purchased new, the Bookstore must be able to resell the book as new. Because books are accepted for a full refund only if they are in pristine condition, please consider the following:

  • Inspect books before you purchase them to ensure that there is no damage that may have occurred during shipping and handling.
  • Caution! Book bags often damage books, so don't carry your books in your book bag until you are certain you will not need to return the book.
  • Keep your books safe from liquids and moisture. Exposure to liquids will cause books to discolor, wrinkle and mildew. The Bookstore will not accept returns on books that have been damaged by liquids.
  • Don't write, highlight, or otherwise mark in a book until you are certain that you will need it for your class.
