Summer Advance of Funding

The Advance of Funding (formally known as a textbook loan) for the summer semester will be available April 28th, 2014. You may be eligible for an advance on your financial aid for the purchase of textbooks and supplies if you have 100% guaranteed funding that is sufficient to cover both your entire balance AND your funding request. Once approved a $10 fee will be applied to your student account.

The Office of the Bursar will need to verify that you have enough certified financial aid available to cover all your tuition and fees as well as the Advance of Funding. If we cannot verify funds, written verification of funding will be required.

The money from the Advance of Funding will be applied to your PolarExpress Card as Bear Bucks. You will be able to purchase books and necessary supplies at any UAF Bookstore. YOU DO NOT NEED A POLAREXPRESS CARD TO PURCHASE BOOKS ONLINE. At checkout, simply enter your student ID number and the amount will be deducted from your Bear Bucks.

All communication regarding your Advance of Funding loan will be sent to your email address indicated below. If you have questions, contact the UAF Office of the Bursar at (907) 474-7384, via email at or visit us in person in 1st Floor Signers' Hall.
