Information on Financial Aid

Pre-semester Book Funds & Billing Questions

The University provides a process for all Federal Aid fund recipients who have cleared all financial aid requirements, to request funds for the purchase of books and supplies up to 10 days prior to the start of the semester/module. If a student has an anticipated credit balance because of their estimated federal funds, they can request these funds from the Student Accounts Office several different ways. All requests are subject to review.

  • Call 203-371-7925

  • Email shuolrequests@sacredheart.edu (with your SHU email and ID number)

  • Purchase your books on the Fairfield campus, with SHU Dollars (prior to going to the Bookstore)

  • Go in person to SC 100 in the academic building during normal business hours.
