Library Card Reimbursement
Saint Leo University students attending the Shaw Education Center may utilize area public, academic, and base libraries to supplement Saint Leo resources. These libraries will require a borrowing card in order for you to check out materials. You should obtain borrowing cards at both a public library and an academic library.
With the purpose of ensuring that every student has book-borrowing privileges, Saint Leo University will reimburse every off-campus student for one library card from a university in their area (not to exceed $150). Students need to save their receipt, fill out the library reimbursement form and contact their Education Center about how to get reimbursed.
