Colleges have the discretion to establish policies and procedures pertaining to the purchase of course­related electronics (e.g., laptops, tablets, cameras, and scientific calculators), uniforms, and tools. Policies and procedures pertaining to course­related electronics, uniforms, and tools must address the types and frequency of items students may purchase.

During the book purchase period, books and supplies purchased using financial aid cannot be returned or sold back to the College Bookstore for cash. Amounts for returned items must be credited back to the aid types that paid for the books and supplies on the student’s account.
