  2. You are registered for classes.
  3. The total financial aid you will be receiving, at your registered credit level, exceeds your current account balance.
  4. You have activated your Saint Paul College e-mail account. (Requests that are submitted without a Saint Paul College e-mail account will not be processed.)
  5. Completed and submitted a Financial Aid Book Charging request online.

  • December 16, 2016 E-mail notification of approved book charging amount will be sent to your Saint Paul College email account if you applied for a book charging before December 16, 2016.
  • December 19, 2016: Book Charging Process begins at the Bookstore.

Your Responsibilities

You will be held responsible for full payment of your books if you become ineligible for Financial Aid or your aid is not sufficient to cover your account balance. Failure to pay all charges on your account will prevent you from registering for future courses and a hold will be placed on all your academic records at Saint Paul College. Your debt will also be referred to the Minnesota Department of Revenue for collection.

You may go directly to the Bookstore to purchase your books and supplies in person. However, you may encounter long lines and thus we encourage you to reserve your books online. Please refer to the Saint Paul College Bookstore Web site for information on how to order your books online. You will need your Star ID#, schedule and Saint Paul College Tech ID or picture ID when charging your books at the Bookstore. Book charging must be completed by January 19, 2017.
