UCONN Bookstore Student Accounts Program

About the program

The University is offering eligible students the opportunity to enroll in the new UCONN Bookstore Student Accounts Program. This program will allow eligible students to charge purchases on qualifying items made in store or online from the University Bookstore (Barnes & Noble) to their student fee bill. Each eligible student that agrees to participate in this voluntary, opt-in program, may charge up to $500.00 per term (fall & spring), $250.00 for summer, and $0 for winter in purchases made from the University Bookstore through this program.

Who is eligible?

Matriculated undergraduate students who are enrolled in at least 6 credits, and matriculated graduate students who are enrolled in at least 5 credits are eligible to enroll in this program. Non-degree and non-credit students are NOT eligible to enroll in this program.

How do I enroll?

Students must opt-in to the UCONN Bookstore Student Accounts Program. Eligible students can enroll in the program AFTER they have registered at least half time (6 or more credits for undergraduates; 5 or more credits for graduates) through their Student Administration account. Once registered in the minimum number of credits, students will navigate to their permissions and requests page and complete the following steps to agree to the terms and conditions of the program.
