Financial Aid Funds
Eligible financial aid recipients will have up to $1,000.00 credit at the Columbus State Bookstore, which may be used in-store and online at bookstore.cscc.edu.
Only the student may make purchases using their Financial Aid funds. A valid photo ID (Columbus State Cougar ID, driver's license, state ID, or military ID) along with their Cougar ID number is required. Funds not used will be disbursed to students who remain eligible for financial aid.

How to check availability
Visit your CougarWeb account and click "Bookstore Charge Transactions" (located under the financial information 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.
