Student Accounts Office decided to begin giving loan advances to weekend law students beginning on Monday, August 2, 2010.
If you receive loans or scholarships to your Hamline account that will have a surplus beyond tuition and fees, you are eligible to receive an advance on the balance dispursement to purchase books. You do have to show up in person to the Cashier's Office and Financial Aid Office, then, once they have verified your account, you can receive up to $500 (you can request less) to purchase books before the semester begins. The advance is given in cash for your use in purchasing books through whatever source you choose. The advance amount is then accounted for on your Piperline account against the loans/scholarships to be dispersed for the semester. This book advance is available each semester, usually approximately 10 days prior to the start of classes. It is available for this Fall on Aug 2nd for Weekend students and Aug 10th for Weekday students.
