Bookstore Credit Information


Summer 2024 Bookstore Credit Information

A bookstore credit allows a student to purchase textbooks and necessary supplies by charging these purchases to the student’s account.  The bookstore credit is only available at the Barnes & Noble bookstores located on the campuses of Horry-Georgetown Technical College.  To be eligible for a bookstore credit a student must be registered for courses and have more anticipated financial aid and/or student loans than the cost of tuition and fees for the term.  The credit does not exceed $2,000.  In addition to tuition and fees, the charges applied to the bookstore credit will be deducted from a student’s financial aid, scholarships, student loan and/or out-of-pocket funds prior to the release of a refund.  If a bookstore credit is used against anticipated aid and a student’s enrollment status changes, a portion or all of the financial aid and/or student loan funds may not be applied to the student’s account and this will create a balance due that aid will not cover. 

Bookstore credits will be available providing your financial aid and/or student loan funds have been applied to your account and a credit/negative balance is indicated. 

All students registered for courses that will begin May 6th and/or afterwards are encouraged to purchase all required books/materials with their available bookstore credit through May 20th.  

To view the status of your bookstore credit, the following steps may be taken after logging into your myHGTC account:

  • Locate the “Manage My Student Account” card
  • Select the “Book Credits” link
  • A message written in blue will indicate the bookstore credit category and amount of the available bookstore credit.
