The book voucher process is completely changing for this Summer 2019 and future semesters. Vouchers are now open and students will need to create their new book voucher in the Transfer of Excess Financial Aid form under the ‘Student’ tab in your Banner Self-Service (click here for more detailed instructions). All previous vouchers have been zeroed out.
Once you have created the book voucher, after 12 p.m. on the following business day you will see a line indicating ‘Bookstore Charge’ under Banner Self-Service > Student > Student Account > Account Detail for Term. Having a ‘Bookstore Charge’ means your voucher is in the bookstore and you can view how much is available in your account.
Beginning March 1 at 10:00 a.m., the Terra State Campus Safety Office will be located in the Engineering Technologies Building (Bldg. E) in E104.

Have you thought about adding one more class to your fall schedule to help save money, get better grades, and stay on track to graduate?
15 is the number of credits you need to take each semester to graduate on time!
Statistics show that students who earn 15 credits per semester are more likely to finish college on time and earn better grades.
Of course, you can take less and still receive scholarships and funding. But taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) accelerates your graduation, saves money overall, and increases your chances of achieving your personal and professional goals. Contact your Advisor today to schedule an appointment to discuss your options at 419.559.2345. Learn more at https://completecollege.org/strategy/15-to-finish/.
