Special Provisions for Books and Supplies under Title IV

Federal regulations (34 CFR 668.164(i))dictate that if an undergraduate student has a T-IV credit balance on their account 10 days prior to the semester, they are able to use their credit balance amount to obtain their books and supplies through the 7 th day of the payment period.  The school may use the actual costs of books and supplies or allowance for those materials used in estimating the student’s cost of attendance for the period.

 A student may opt out of the book voucher by simply not utilizing the established process in place.  If a student does opt out, your T-IV credit balance will be issued to you through the normal process. 

In addition, Cedarville University allows all undergraduate students to receive a voucher for books and supplies.  There is a $1,000 cap on the limit.  If a student has an invoice above this amount, on a case-by-case basis, with Cashier authorization, the limit may be increased.  The timeframe to use the voucher is from the first week of August through the first week of September.
