You may purchase/rent your books in several trips to the bookstore as long as you have not exhausted the full amount allocated for spring semester. If you make changes to your class schedule (add or drop classes) after your first visit to the bookstore, you need a printout of your updated book list to use your book voucher.

EOPS book service is provided to students to support them financially ensuring that students have the educational tools necessary to succeed academically. The amount allocated may not cover all the textbook related expenses. If, however, you have completed purchasing all the required textbooks for your classes, but have not exhausted the full amount allocated for winter, the remainder amount will remain in the EOPS account to be used for book voucher allocation next term. Book Vouchers may be used to purchase/rent only those books that are required for registered courses. The book voucher is non-transferable. In no circumstances, students may use their EOPS book voucher to purchase books for another individual.
Potential EOPS Students: Receiving a book voucher is not guaranteed by the program. It is contingent upon student eligibility and available funds. It is highly recommended that while in the admission process, students purchase/rent their books and keep their receipts. If you get a book voucher award the first semester you can get reimbursed up to the maximum amount of the book voucher award. All exchanges or returns are done at the bookstore.
