OneCard Uses

Book Charge System

NIU students who are receiving financial aid have a convenient method of buying books and school supplies at the beginning of each semester. Students can use their OneCard ID at either of the two local bookstores to charge the cost of their books and school supplies to their bursar account. In doing so, this puts the cost on the bill with tuition and housing that is sent home each semester. It is important to note, however, that only students who are receiving financial aid can utilize this feature.
