Any UTSA student enrolled in at least half-time credit hours is eligible to apply. You do not have to be a financial aid recipient in order to apply. You must not have a prior semester Fiscal Services balance or any type of financial hold (parking fine, library fine, etc.).
Important Note: Due to the increased Book Loan amount of $500.00, students are limited to only ONE Book Loan per academic term.
Students must be registered at least half-time to be eligible for a book loan. In fall and spring, half-time is 6 hours for undergraduates and 4 hours for graduates. In summer term, half-time enrollment for undergraduates is 6 credit hours and for graduates is 3 credit hours.
Because summer has multiple terms, students need to be currently enrolled for the summer term that you are requesting a book loan for and be at least half-time for the entire summer. For example, undergraduate students need to be enrolled in at least one 3-credit mini-semester class and another 3-credit class in a different summer term to be considered half-time and eligible to request a book loan for the mini-semester.
