Can I place an online order with Financial Aid and a Credit Card in the same order?

I'm sorry no, we can't split payments between Financial Aid and Credit Cards on the website. You either have to place an order with Financial Aid under the amount you have in your account, or place 2 orders, one with Financial Aid under the amount you have, and then a credit card order for the remaining items. If you place an online order for more than you have in your Financial Aid account, the order will be cancelled.

Can I use this website to check my financial aid funds?

I'm sorry no, you can only use CougarWeb to check your financial aid funds.

Can I cancel my order once it has been placed? 

Once an order has been placed it cannot be canceled.
