Prior to the beginning of each semester, the Director of Athletic Financial Aid submits a list of names and student identification numbers to the University Bookstore designating the student-athletes who are approved to receive required textbooks as part of their athletically related financial aid. Lists are submitted in August for first semester, January for second semester, and May for summer school.
Student-athletes appearing on the Textbook List are approved to receive only books which are designated as required texts. Student-athletes may be required to present an authorization note from their instructor or copy of their class syllabus to establish that a specific book is part of the required course materials. Optional course materials may not be purchased with Kansas Athletics scholarship funds.
At the end of each semester, the Director of Athletic Financial Aid establishes time frames whereby student-athletes shall return to Kansas Athletics those textbooks which were purchased as part of their athletically related financial aid. If student-athletes desire to keep a textbook(s) for their personal library, they must complete the required form and follow the procedures established by the Director of Financial Aid.
The Bursar’s Office will charge student-athlete accounts a $25.00 “no return book” fee for each lost and/or unreturned textbook. Student-athletes with unreturned textbooks will be notified by the Director of Athletic Financial Aid of the charges that will be placed on their account. Failure to pay these charges will result in a “hold” being placed on the student-athlete’s account.
Student-athletes seeking exceptions to this policy may appeal their circumstances to the Senior Woman Administrator.
