Book Allowance

A book allowance is an advancement charged against your financial aid refund that allows you to purchase books and other supplies. The book allowance amount will be deducted from your excess financial aid. For additional information, view the Frequently Asked Questions.

The book allowance is advanced through Southwest funds not Federal Grant funds. By accepting a book allowance, the student agrees to be responsible for the full repayment of the book allowance, when a change in enrollment status results in a financial aid adjustment (i.e. changes in enrollment due to class cancellation by College, withdrawal from Southwest, cancellation/termination of aid by Financial Aid Office, etc.).

All book allowance checks will be mailed via the U.S. Postal Service to the primary mailing address reflected in your My.Southwest account. Please ensure the mailing address is correct to prevent any delay in receiving your check. If changes are needed visit Admissions and Records on the Macon Cove or Union Avenue Campus.

Additional questions can be emailed to the Cashier's Office at or call 901-333-5292.
