Book Advances

In This Section

Understand how book advances work and how to use them.

  • If your financial aid refund is less than $500, you will not be automatically enrolled in the RU Book Advance program.
  • PLUS loan funds are not eligible for the RU Book Advance program.
  • You can opt out of the RU Book Advance at any time online.
