Are you expecting a refund from your Spring 2023 financial aid? If you answered yes to this question, then you may be eligible to apply for a Textbook Deferment online via self-service Banner.
The Textbook Deferment link can be accessed in the Student, Student Accounts, or Financial Aid sections in self-service Banner. Only students with a credit balance (excess financial aid and/or payments) will have the option displayed to request a Textbook Deferment. A student may only apply for one (1) Textbook Deferment per semester. Therefore, before submitting the request, the student should ensure that all tasks are completed to maximize your textbook deferment (up to $750) at http://financialaid.buffalostate.edu/maximize-textbook-deferment.
A Textbook Deferment will allow you to purchase textbooks at the Barnes & Noble Buffalo State Bookstore only. This online option for applying for a Textbook Deferment via self-service Banner is available from Thursday, January 12, 2023 to Wednesday, February 8, 2023 (4:30p.m.) for eligible students only, with the final date to use in the bookstore Friday, February 24, 2023.
Textbook Deferment requests submitted online by 7:00 p.m. will be available to use the next business day.
Textbook Deferment requests submitted online after 7:00 p.m. will be available to use in two business days.
Please be advised that an in-person Textbook Deferment is still available for students that prefer this option. Report to Moot Hall during normal business hours and visit either the Financial Aid Office or Student Accounts Office to apply. In-person requests will be available to use in two business days.
