FAQ

At which bookstores can I charge my books to my NCard Campus Account/UNL Consolidated Bill?

The University Bookstore inside the Nebraska Union and the University Bookstore inside the Nebraska East Union.

Books and materials purchased anywhere other than the University Bookstore can not be charged to the NCard Campus Account and can not be put on the Student Accounts Consolidated Bill.

My son's/daughter's purchased textbooks didn't appear on their UNL Student Accounts Consolidated Bill, what happened?

Textbooks and other supplies can only be charged to the UNL Student Accounts Consolidated Bill when the student uses their NCard as the method of payment at the University Bookstore inside the Nebraska Union and the University Bookstore inside the Nebraska East Union.

Textbooks that have been purchased using the NCard Campus Account program typically appear on the Consolidated Bill's second billing cycle. For Fall semester that means textbooks would typically appear on the September bill due in October and for Spring semester it means textbooks would typically appear on the January bill due in February.
