Bookstore Credit

Bookstore credit is used to make purchases at the UIW Bookstore and is available for students whose financial aid exceeds their billed costs.

  • To make a purchase at the UIW Bookstore, present your student ID card to the bookstore cashier.
  • For online purchases through the UIW Bookstore website, enter your student ID as the payment method on the checkout page.
  • Bookstore credit may not exceed $600 per semester.
  • Bookstore credit becomes available 2 weeks before the semester begins and remains on your account until 4 weeks prior to the end of the semester.
  • Any unused bookstore allowance will be credited back to the student's account. If the student's account is paid in full, then a refund will be issued.
