Use the Textbook Charge Program

With the program, you can purchase required books and supplies from the NWTC Bookstore by charging the items directly to your student account at NWTC. That enables you to pay for books and supplies – along with your tuition and fees – with your financial aid and/or with NWTC’s no interest payment plan.


To be eligible for the Textbook Charge program, you must be enrolled in classes in the term for which the book charge is requested. In addition, you must be:

  • Awarded financial aid and complete all the requirements  – the amount available to you to charge books will be based on the approved financial awards you are receiving after tuition and fees are fully covered in the requested term.
  • AND/OR
  • Enrolled in an active NWTC Payment Plan.


Step 1:  Log into your student portal to make sure all your funding is in place; in other words, ensure that you have been awarded financial aid and/or are enrolled in an active NWTC Payment Plan.   
Step 2:  View and print your booklist through the student portal.
Step 3:  Visit the NWTC Bookstore to purchase and charge your required books and supplies on your NWTC student account. 
Step 4:  After the books are purchased, the charges will post to your student account through an overnight process. Review your account balance to make sure your funding is in place.  

*Keep a copy of your receipt in case you need to return items. Charged books will be returned according to the NWTC Bookstore's return policy.  
*Note: If you are no longer eligible for financial aid or if your aid changes, it is your responsibility to pay any bookstore charges. If you are on a payment plan, your payment plan will rebalance to include the additional book charges. Please log into My.Financials to view your monthly installments.
