If you want up to $600 in your excess aid to go to the SVSU Bookstore, "Opt In" to the program on Cardinal Direct. If you have already done this in a previous semester, you are still enrolled in this option. Look at your Account Summary by Term on Cardinal Direct for the Fall 2012 semester. If you see that your aid has been disbursed to your account, your bookstore funds should be available to you by the next business day or sooner. Check Cardinal Direct to confirm you have a bookstore credit by going to Account Summary by Term and looking for "FA Bookstore Advance". If you see this on your account, your excess funds are available at the bookstore.
These funds will be at the SVSU Bookstore starting the week before Fall classes begin. The Bookstore process begins on Boo. Not all funds will be available the week before classes; you may have other circumstances that will not allow the funds to transfer. Please contact the OSFA if you have questions.
