Students who elect to purchase their own textbooks may be eligible to receive a books advance stipend. In order to be eligible for the advance, you must have sufficient aid to cover semester charges and have enough funds to cover the book advance amount, be registered for the upcoming term, and meet ACHS’s Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress. (Please note that not all types of financial aid are eligible to receive a book advance, and past due debts may make you ineligible for an advance.)
A book advance is a portion of your awarded financial aid that is advanced to you to purchase your books. Book advances are not free and they are NOT additional financial aid.
In order to opt-in to the Book Advance stipend, please complete the Book Advance Request Form. By not submitting the Book Advance Request form, you are voluntarily opting out of this program. If you opt-in to the Book Advance program, you will be contacted by a member of the Financial Aid Department to discuss the amount and timeline for issuing of funds.
Students must opt-in to the Book Advance by the end of the first week of each semester.
