Bookstore Advance Purchase Program (BAPP)
The Bookstore Advance Purchase Program (BAPP) allows financial aid recipients to use approved financial aid funds in excess of the charges on their student account to purchase books and supplies from the Nova Southeastern University Bookstore before their scheduled disbursement date.
Please Note: Gold Circle Emergency Loans will no longer be approved for book purchases. The Gold Circle Emergency Loan Program is currently under review.
- The student's total financial aid award amount for the semester must exceed all institutional charges on the student's account (including, but not limited to tuition, fees, campus housing, NSU health insurance, and meals).
- Authorization is granted or denied based on a snapshot of the student's account at the time of completion of the BAPP Form. If changes in enrollment or any other circumstances lead to a change in the student's financial aid eligibility, the student will become responsible for any outstanding balances that may occur.
- Student must be registered.
- Student may only request BAPP funds once per semester up to $750.
Opt-Out: NSU is required to make all or a part of a Pell Grant-eligible student's anticipated Title IV credit balance available in time for the student to purchase books and supplies by the seventh day of the payment period. By not signing up for the BAPP when eligible, a student is voluntarily opting-out of this program which grants him or her early access to financial aid funds for the purchase of books and supplies. Students with a Title IV credit balance who opt-out of BAPP will receive their financial aid refund within 14 days of the date that the credit balance was created on their NSU student account.
Title IV funds are federal financial aid grant, work-study, and loan funds in the following programs: Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, Subsidized Stafford Loan, Perkins Loan, Graduate Plus Loan, Parent Plus Loan, Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Teacher Educational Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant, and Federal Work-Study.
