Textbook Award Program

Students meeting the requirements to receive the $500 Textbook Award for eight semesters should claim the award through Porches by following the instructions provided here.

To determine if you are eligible for the Textbook Award:

Log in to Porches and click "View and confirm your awards" in the Financial Aid channel on the Flyers First tab. Check the Award Overview tab. If you are eligible for the award, you will see a message that says, "You are eligible to receive up to $500 per semester for the cost of books via the Textbook Award Program."

To determine your Textbook Award balance:

Check your Flyer Express Balances by visiting the Flyer Express website. Click "My Account" and log in with your network username and password. View your Award balance.


Ask a Bookstore cashier to look up your balance. You'll need your ID card to get this information.

To use the Textbook Award:

Visit the Bookstore's textbook department, located on the second floor of the Bookstore. Our trained and dedicated staff will be able to assist you in looking up your schedule and helping you find your books on the shelves. You'll be able to choose between new, used, rental and, in some titles, digital books. Take your selections to a cash register and let the cashier know you have the Textbook Award. In one transaction, you'll be able to purchase and/or rent all of your textbooks.
