Book Account

Students who are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant or Direct Student Loan refund will be issued an STLCC Book Account to make allowable purchases including books and some supplies at the campus bookstores.


Once your financial aid award is complete, a book account will be authorized and a notification will be sent to your my.stlcc.edu student email address. The authorized amount will appear in the your Banner Self-Service account after Aug. 8, 2016 for fall 2015 semester; and after Jan. 3, 2017 for spring 2017 semester.


The amount is based on your financial aid award and the number of hours you are taking, not to exceed $600.

Enrollment Status Maximum Amount
Full-time (12 hours or more $600
3/4-time (9-11 hours) $450
1/2-time (6-8 hours) $300
Less than 1/2-tim (5 hours or less)     $150

Your book account is based on your current schedule. Your financial aid award will be adjusted if you make changes to your schedule or fail to attend all of your classes. You will be responsible for paying any balances that occur due to a change in your financial aid award.
