CTE Needs-based Textbook Support

Please note: The application window is now closed and will reopen for the Spring 2022 semester in November 2021.


Textbook support is available to students enrolled in a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Associate of Applied Science Degree or Certificate program. Students must meet one of the qualifiers listed on the checklist and be enrolled in a minimum of one course. Students enrolled in the fall semester are eligible for $250. Students must be registered for classes through the withdrawal period or funds must be repaid. Funds will be deposited in the student's financial aid account and can only be used at the Follett College of DuPage Bookstore. Funds cannot be used to reimburse.

Financial support is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis for the semester, and any unused funds will be returned to College of DuPage. Students will be notified of their award status the beginning of August and can view their award through their My Access Financial Aid Self-Service account. CTE Textbook Support can only be used at the bookstore during the standard financial aid window, no sooner than three weeks prior to the start of term and no later than two months after the start of term.
