Bookstore Quick Loans

A BOOKSTORE QUICK LOAN (BKQL) is an advance of expected "excess" financial aid. A BKQL may only be used at the ASU Bookstore for the purchase of books and educational supplies.*

Eligibility is generally based on a delayed federal loan disbursement; such as a first-time freshman loan which is subject to a 30-day delay. Students with a single semester loan (i.e. fall only loan) may also be eligible as the second disbursement is made at mid-point of the semester.
