How Do I Use Financial Aid to Buy Books or Transfer Money to my Deacon OneCard?

If a student’s total financial aid award exceeds the student’s charges for a semester, the student may:

  • Request a refund through Student Financial Services to purchase books, supplies, or personal expenses.  Funds disburse before the start of the semester if all requirements have been satisfied, and Student Financial Services begins processing refunds the first week of classes.
  • Move a credit balance from the student account to the Deacon OneCard, which can be used at the College Bookstore, Benson Student Union, Z.Smith Reynolds Library
