If you have an authorized financial aid disbursement that exceeds your student account charges, then you may be eligible to use your financial aid (including Foundation scholarships) to purchase books and required supplies before classes begin.

Once you log into LOIS, use the steps below to check for your bookstore authorization. 

  • From the LOIS main menu, click on Financial Aid 
  • Click on Eligibility 
  • Click on Student Requirements 

The next page will display the word “COMPLETE REQUIREMENT” with a statements regarding your bookstore authorization (including available dates).

If this statement does not exist on your account, please contact the Financial Aid Office at (352) 365-3567. If you are later found ineligible for financial aid after purchases are made, it will be your responsibility to pay any charges that are on your account.
