Financial Aid

Last day to purchase with financial aid in store and online is Monday September 23rd. Please remember if you place a financial aid order over the amount you have in your account the order will get cancelled. Online orders for financial aid cannot be split up by payment, we can only do that at a cash register inside the store. To check your financial aid funds please login to your CougarWeb account.
