Electronic Book Vouchers

Students who are expecting a refund from their financial aid funds may use up to $800 in the University Bookstore as a book store credit. Students with a book store credit for a semester have a limited time to utilize the credit before it expires.  It is important to note that changes to your enrollment, aid, and/or eligibility may result in you still owing a balance if the credit is used before the changes are reflected on your invoice.

Students that have third-party vouchers covering book and supplies may use up to the amount that is designated on the voucher. Vouchers must be submitted to the Bursar's office via email to bursar@savannahstate.edu or third-party portal prior.
