Using your Financial Aid at the Bookstore

Pell Book Allowance Procedures

Pell eligible students with complete Pell files will be allowed to charge required books and supplies against their Pell award at the bookstore. Keep in mind your Pell award after tuition and fee charges have been deducted may not be sufficient to cover the cost of books. Please check your Pell award information on BannerWeb.

The bookstore has computerized cash registers and will have the authorized book allowance on file. All students must have a North Georgia Technical College photo ID which must be presented at the book store for identification purposes. Students may not charge against their Pell award online or over the phone

Recipients of the $500 HOPE GED Voucher may use these funds at the bookstore if a balance is available after tuition and fees have been paid for the term. The HOPE GED Voucher should be presented to the Financial Aid Office no earlier than the first day of class. The bookstore has computerized cash registers and will have the authorized book allowance on file.

Students Who Withdraw or Stop Attending

Important Information Regarding Recalculation of Awards for Students Who Withdraw or Stop Attending
Classes Dropped During the 3 day – 100% Drop Period:

Students who drop all classes before the 100% drop period ends will be responsible for repaying all Pell funds used at the bookstore.

Pell Grant Recalculation Procedure for Students Who Withdraw or Stop Attending all Classes

Title IV funds (Pell Grant) are awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of the Title IV funds that the student was originally scheduled to receive. This means that students who withdraw or stop attending classes must have their award re-calculated and may owe back funds used at the NGTC Bookstore.
