Does MassBay offer assistance to cover purchasing textbooks and/or shipping costs?

  • TEXTBOOK VOUCHERS
    Students who have an excess of Federal Financial Aid may use the funds towards textbooks at the MassBay Book Store.  If you have previously completed the Title IV Authorization Form, you will automatically continue to receive a voucher as long as there are excess funds available.  If you have not previously submitted the form, you can now log into Bay Navigator to complete.

    Bay Navigator > Student Finances & Aid tile > click on Bookstore Voucher > Grant Permission > review the Title IV Agreement > click Next > Check the box indicating that you have read the agreement > click Submit. Please allow 48 hours for the system to process your book voucher.

    Watch your MassBay email starting shortly before the beginning of the semester, for an email from Student Accounts regarding your voucher. If you have additional questions about the textbook voucher process please contact, Student Accounts at studentaccounts@massbay.edu.
  • SGA TEXTBOOK FUND
    The Student Government Association established the SGA Textbook Fund to assist students in covering the costs of textbooks. For the fall 2022 semester, SGA will open the Textbook Fund Application on August 23, 2022. Funds are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you have additional questions about the SGA Textbook Fund please contact Katie Cronmiller at mcronmiller@massbay.edu
