Book Policy for Full Scholarship Student-Athletes


Course Material Pick-Up Policy – Academic Services (251 Boyden Building)


  • Each semester, book scholarship student-athletes should pick up their course materials from the Textbook Annex on campus after being notified via e-mail by the office of Academic Services.  If their course materials are not sold at the Annex, they must bring a course syllabus to Academic Services so arrangements can be made for them to be purchased at another store and put on reserve for student pick-up in 251 Boyden.  Student-athletes must show their UCard to pick up books.

  • It must be clearly stated in the syllabus what course materials are required.  Student-athletes are to pick up only what is authorized by Academic Services.  Attempts to purchase anything else with Athletic Department funds constitute an NCAA violation.

  • If asked for a syllabus and one is not available, student-athletes must ask their instructors to send an email to an Academic Services staff member, stating the materials and confirming that they are required. 

  • All requests for required course materials must be made by the Friday following the add/drop deadline for the Fall and Spring semesters.


Course Material Return Policy – Academic Services (251 Boyden Building)

  • All books and related course materials must be returned to the office of Academic Services by the last day of final exams for each semester, regardless of what store they came from.  Summer session materials need to be returned by the end of the add/drop period of the Fall semester, and Winter session materials need to be returned by the end of the add/drop period of the Spring semester.  Books and materials must be returned only to Academic Services staff members.  They may not be left with a student worker, left with a note, or returned by another student.  They also may not be loaned to another student.

  • Student-athletes need to notify Academic Services immediately if their books are stolen and a police report has been filed.  Otherwise, these books will be considered not returned.

  • You are responsible for all course materials listed on a receipt from the Textbook Annex and listed on a book slip given to you by Academic Services, so make sure you check your bag after you pick up materials from the Annex to make sure you have everything.  We recommend that you keep copies of receipts from the Textbook Annex and book slips from Academic Services to remind you of what you need to return.

  • DO NOT return any course materials purchased by Athletics directly to the Annex.

  • Any student-athlete who does not return books by the stated deadline will be charged the cost of the materials not returned.  This fee will appear on Bursar’s bills and could result in a hold on registration if not paid by the appropriate date.
