UWC Scholars Book Vouchers: Policies & Guidelines
Book vouchers, as part of OU UWC Scholars Program scholarships, are an account associated with a UWC Scholar’s OU ID number used for purchasing required textbooks and academic materials for enrolled OU courses. They operate like a credit account that allows students to charge the cost of required course materials to their bursar accounts. Approved and eligble charges of these required academic materials are then covered by scholarship.
The guidelines and policies of the UWC Scholars Book Vouchers can be found in the pdf below. The policy includes book voucher processes, documentation requirements, eligible/ineligible items, and guidelines to ensure book vouchers and materials purchased are handled properly.
Reimbursement Guidelines for Required Course Materials
The OU UWC Scholars staff understand that not everything required for your courses is available at the OU Bookstore. These guidelines are for current students requesting a check to purchase, or a reimbursement for the purchase of, required course materials not available at the OU Bookstore. Please refer to these guidelines before purchasing course materials or requesting a check to purchase. These guidelines also address which items are eligible or ineligible for reimbursement. When in doubt, always obtain pre-approval from the OU UWC Scholars Offices at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current OU UWC Scholars may use the online form for submitting check and reimbursement requests or email their requests with the appropriate supporting documents.
Students may access the online form here.
