All students enrolled in Edison State College are required to obtain a Student ID through the Connect Card Office (see locations at right).

Financial Aid Purchases

You will continue to have access to any excess financial aid funds to make purchases in the bookstore. The only change is, effective December 16, 2011, you will need your Connect Card to make the purchase. The bookstore will swipe the ID, much like a debit card, and the transaction amount will be deducted from your financial aid.

The option to purchase your textbooks and course materials online through the Edison State College Bookstore using excess Financial Aid funds will be available on the following dates:

The cardholder shall be responsible for observing the debit transaction at the time of the sale and for monitoring the current account balance. Each individual is responsible for managing his/her account. A Connect Card account is like cash – IT MUST BE PROTECTED.

Cash refunds and withdrawals will not be permitted. Purchases will not be permitted with a malfunctioning card. There are no limitations on the number of times the Connect Card may be used or the dollar amount of any transaction, so long as the purchase amount does not exceed the balance of the Connect Card account.
