You can purchase books/supplies with financial aid online or in person (see below). Upon collection of your orders, the OCC Bookstore will ask you to sign a receipt which will act as your authorization to use financial aid to cover your charges.
- Online: You can pre-order your books online at the OCC Bookstore website page using financial aid. Follow the directions to select the books you would like to purchase. Under "Method of Payment" select financial aid from the drop-down menu and enter your OCC Student ID Number as your 'account number'. If you order your books prior to the start of classes, you will not receive them any sooner than 10 days prior to the start of class.
- In Person: You can purchase your books in person at the OCC Bookstore using your financial aid. Join the line for financial aid students (there may be a long wait) and have your schedule of classes and OCC Student ID Card ready to present to the Cashier.
Please Note: When purchasing books/supplies with financial aid, the OCC Bookstore will not allow you to collect them until the first day of the term. You will have the first 10 business days of a regular term(Fall, Spring etc.) and the first five business days of a quick term to purchase your books with financial aid.After this time, you will not be permitted to use financial aid to purchase books/supplies.
