How to check availability

Visit your CougarWeb account and click "Bookstore Charge Transactions" (located under the financial aid section) to verify available funds.

The bookstore is only able to check balances with a photo ID (driver's license, state ID, CougarID), so funds may not be verified over phone or email. If your Financial Aid book allowance is not available at the bookstore, please contact the Columbus State Financial Aid Department at 614-287-2648.
