The Fr. Kevin J. Sheeran, O.S.B. Textbook Program was created to help students in need meet the cost of required texts for classes in which they are enrolled. Program awards are based upon eligibility criteria and supplement students’ existing financial aid resources. However, the program is not intended to substitute for appropriate fiscal planning, financial aid processes, student employment or other means of assistance available to students to help finance their educational expenses. Students are encouraged to pursue student employment opportunities available through the university and to seek assistance from the Financial Aid Office (Freshman Fin. Aid and Transfer Student Fin. Aid) regarding loans and other forms of assistance that may be available.
Funding through the Fr. Kevin J. Sheeran Textbook Program is limited. There is no guarantee that every applicant will qualify for a textbook award or that any funds received will be sufficient to cover the cost of textbooks. Funds received through the program are limited to the purchase of required text materials identified in course syllabi. Recipients are required to submit a bookstore receipt to the Student Success Center and agree to the terms of a textbook return process.
