Book Advances: FAQs & Your Responsibilities

shelf with books

As a friendly reminder, book advance funds are now issued through the Maricopa Student Refund Program (MSRP) and will be issued nine business days before the start of a semester. 
MSRP began issuing advances as of yesterday, August 12 through the Money Network®, which lets  you choose how to receive your payments, through direct deposit, a Visa prepaid card or paper check.

Student Responsibilities:

  • Opt-in to receive your advance if eligible. Meet all terms and conditions for your financial aid.
  • Spend the money wisely! Use the funds to purchase the required books and supplies for your classes. Remember to review your class schedule in your Online Student Center so you purchase the right materials.
  • If you receive a book advance and are later found ineligible, you are responsible for returning the funds back to your school.
  • If you receive a book advance and decide not to attend school, you are responsible for repaying the amount you received.
