Meredith College responded to concerns about the rising cost of textbooks.

The online bookstore is optimized for mobile devices, making it easy to use on any Smartphone or tablet.

Yes, prior to the beginning of the term, the Office of Financial Assistance will contact you with the amount of excess financial aid you will receive and at that time you will have the opportunity to transfer those funds to a book voucher which can be spent on the Meredith College Bookstore website.
A book voucher is a receipt created by the accounting office when you have deposited funds to your student account to be used specifically for books or requested financial aid be used for books. Once the book voucher is created, you will receive an email to your Meredith student email address with a voucher code to be used on the bookstore website. Each book voucher will have an expiration date. If the funds are not used by the expiration date, any amount left over will be credited back to your student account.
Yes, parents can either add money to your student account and specify that they want the money to go towards a book voucher, or they can go to the bookstore website and purchase a gift card. Unlike Book Vouchers, excess funds on a gift card will not be credited back to your student account.
