Financial Aid Bookstore Authorizations

Students whose financial aid exceeds the cost of their tuition and charges will receive a refund for the surplus amount.
The University of North Florida authorizes students who anticipate a financial aid refund to use all or part of that refund in the UNF Bookstore. The amount of the Bookstore Authorization is limited to the anticipated financial aid refund for the term and may not exceed $600 per term.
Eligible students will receive notification of their Bookstore Authorization via their UNF email account. The email will direct students to their myWings account to view the value of the Authorization. Students can monitor their transaction history and balance remaining on the Authorization in myWings.
A Bookstore Authorization is part of a student’s total financial aid for the term – it is not additional funding – and the value represents the anticipated refund at the time the Authorization was issued. Changes to enrollment, especially changes that increase a student’s fee assessment, may result in changes to the actual value of the Bookstore Authorization. Changes to the value of a Bookstore Authorization will be reflected in the student's myWings account.
The Bookstore Authorization may be used between the date the student receives the email and the expiration date available in myWings. The expiration date is generally the next calendar day following the add/drop period.
