Student Charging Options

A Bookstore charge account is provided to all registered Dickinson students. The charge option works like a credit card using your student ID. Your account is opened with a zero balance and each purchase adds to the total. At the end of the billing cycle, charges are forwarded to the Office of Student Accounts and combined with the student's monthly statement.

The charge option is safe and convenient. No need to carry cash. Charging lets you purchase as little or as much as you'd like.

The charge option has no limit to the amount that you may charge as long as your account is current. Accounts are considered current when paid within thirty days of receiving your bill. All accounts past due more than thirty days will be charged 1.5% and charging privileges will be turned off.

A benefit of charging is that all purchases are recorded on your account and if you want to return an item and have lost your receipt, all we have to do is look up your account to verify the purchase.

The Bookstore also accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and personal checks.
