You will be given a "verified" card if you are clear to purchase/charge at the bookstore. If there is a problem, we will help you rectify your individual situation.
Somerset Students: You will enter the Rogers Student Commons and begin your process in the Community Room. Please enter the building from the flag pole entrance.
London Students: Please follow signage for the bookstore entrance to Building 2. You will proceed to the formed line of students to continue.
If you don't want to wait in the long line to charge books, you may order your books online at http://kctcs.bncollege.com/ .
If you have already ordered your books online, they may be picked up around the corner from the Community Room in Somerset and the first door past the Bamp;N bookstore in London. You will need to have ID when picking up your box of texts.If WIA is paying a portion of your books, please see Loretta Johnson for a book voucher. If you are picking your books up on the London campus, tell them the Financial Aid representative are in the WIA program, otherwise the charges will be taken out of your financial aid. (Loretta is located in the Financial Aid suite at the Somerset North Campus.)
NOTE: If the bookstore is temporarily out of your book, please ask a bookseller about lock in sales. This will allow you to charge the book to your financial aid even though the book may come in after bookstore charge dates.
In order to be eligible for Financial Aid for the Fall 2010 term, you must either be a MEETS, Probation 1 or Probation 2 on SAP. If you are SUSPENDED, you need to appeal. The form can be found on the KCTCS website. Bookstore charges CANNOT occur if you are suspended from aid. Please note that if an appeal is required, you will not be able to charge books until your appeal has been submitted and ruled upon. SAP APPEALS need to be turned in by close of business no later than August 2nd.
You can check your self service for the aid available to you by using http://www.somerset.kctcs.edu/SRESOURCE_StudentSelfService.html. Remember all aid is figured at FULL TIME until classes are locked on the Friday of the first week of classes. You may also view your tuition charges at the same link. Aid minus tuition equals eligibility at the bookstore.
EBills have been sent to all students. Tuition is due on Friday, August 20th!
If you are in the WIA program, make sure your FAFSA is complete and you have turned in all paperwork if you were picked for verification. An incomplete financial aid file will result in cancellation of all WIA benefits.
Aid is scheduled to hit your KCTCS debit card on Thursday (after noon), September 23, 2010. If you are receiving a check, please allow a couple of more days for delivery.
