BlazerBucks for Books

Students spoke. We listened.

Students with extra financial aid have reported difficulty in accessing those funds to purchase books prior to the start of classes.

In response, students who have $50 or more in anticipated financial aid in excess of their student account balance on January 2, 2014, will automatically receive that amount—up to $500—as a transfer to their BlazerBucks accounts. Students may use these funds at Barnes & Noble at UAB or any other BlazerBucks vendor.

These BlazerBucks will be available by noon on Thursday, January 2, so that you may purchase books before classes begin on January 6, 2014.

Students may opt out of this automatic BlazerBucks transfer by completing the online form by noon on January 1, 2014. Students who opt out will receive their excess financial aid via direct deposit during the week of January 6, after the start of classes.
