Book Allowance/Parking Permit

Purchase of book allowances and parking permits for Spring 2016 will be available from December 22, 2015 - January 25, 2016.  You must have a credit balance after all tuition, fees, housing and meal plans (if applicable) are paid in order to request a book allowance or parking permit. 


Please read the following important information before making your request:

  1. In order to receive a book allowance/parking permit you must have a credit or excess money on your student account.
  2. For example, if your total bill for school comes to $4,650.00, but you are receiving $6,000.00 in financial aid, your expected refund would be $1,350.00.  This is the amount that can be applied to purchasing your book allowance and/or parking permit.
  3. The maximum amount any student can receive for a book allowance is $700.00 (if there is $700.00 of credit available).  Any amount between $5 and $700.00 may be used for a book allowance. 
  4. Book allowances may be requested in increments.  For example, a request may be made for $200.00 and another request made for $500.00.  These increments are available until the $700.00 maximum is reached. 
  5. Only one parking permit may be purchased per student.
  6. Freshman students are not permitted to purchase a parking permit online.
  7. The purchase will immediately show on your account. 
  8.  The credit will appear on your AggieOne card approximately one hour after your purchase request.
