Book Voucher Processing Information

Spring 2021 Book Voucher Processing Status

Book vouchers for the spring 2021 semester are not currently available.  Spring book vouchers will be processed by the Bursar's Office once anticipated financial aid has been applied to student billing accounts.  Anticipated spring financial aid is estimated to post on or around December 1, 2020.   

Other import information about book vouchers:

A book voucher allows eligible students to charge books against their student billing account prior to the disbursement of financial aid funds.  If financial aid is in place and the total amount of financial aid exceeds the student's account balance (after tuition and fees are applied), a student may "opt-in" to request a book voucher.  The "opt-in" only needs to be completed once during the academic year.

Prior to purchasing books, students should review their required course materials to ensure they are ordering correct textbooks.

Students are issued one book voucher per semester and should register for their semester classes at the same time.

It can take several days for the Bursar's Office to process a book voucher once anticipated financial aid has been posted.  Students will be notified by MBS Direct (Barnes & Noble College) through their Charter Oak email when the voucher is ready to use.  Students should follow the steps in their email to access the bookstore's URL and indicate that payment will be made using the financial aid book voucher. 

Students who are issued a book voucher, but cannot locate the email,  can use this link to have their voucher ID resent.

Office of Early Childhood (OEC) Students:

Charter Oak State College does not process book vouchers for OEC students. This is because funding for books comes from the Office of Early Childhood.   

For all OEC book voucher inquiries, please contact MBS Strategic Accounts at (888) 886-3072 or at strategicaccounts@bncservices.com.

Alternatively, OEC students can contact their OEC counselor for book voucher assistance.

 Information about the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT):

 Tax return information transferred from the IRS into fafsa.gov now has stronger security and privacy protections.

  • As a result, tax information transferred from the IRS will not be visible to the applicant and will not display on the IRS DRT web page, FAFSA form, or on the Student Aid Report.
  • Instead, students will see "Transferred from the IRS" in the appropriate fields of on fafsa.gov, the IRS DRT web page, and on their Student Aid Report.   See below for how transferred information will be displayed:
