What is a Book Line of Credit (BLOC)?

If your financial aid exceeds your tuition and fee charges, you may charge up to $800 in books and supplies using the Book Line of Credit (a short-term, interest-free loan) at campus bookstores. Your financial aid file must be complete with sufficient financial aid funds in order to use the BLOC.

The BLOC is not the same as the Textbook Credit.

How much is the BLOC?

The amount of your Book Line of Credit is based on projected financial aid that will be refunded at the end of the fourth week of your classes. The amount may change based on changes in your enrollment and/or expected financial aid award(s).

When is the BLOC available?

BLOC availability is based on your enrollment. Dates are listed below.

How do I use my BLOC?

The bookstore will have your information on file and will apply your available book charges on your student account. You can use your BLOC to purchase your books and supplies in store or online and have them shipped to you. Get details on using your Book Line of Credit to pay online with Barnes & Noble College.

What if I don’t use all of my BLOC?

If you do not spend your entire BLOC, the amount you do not spend will be refunded to you at the end of the fourth week of your classes.
