Go to the Barnes & Noble college bookstore at RIT. Go to any register. Ask if they have your VR book authorization. If yes, go buy your books.

What types of financial aid are available?

Financial aid may include student loans, student employment, combinations of grant-in-aid, Vocational Rehabilitation and federal and state grants that are available for students in need. RIT's Financial Aid Office has more information.
