Overdue Material, Holds, & Fees 

  1. No daily fines are collected for overdue material. When an item is overdue, you will receive a courtesy notice informing you of the overdue status and providing the opportunity to renew the material. However, you will be blocked from charging out any library material until the overdue item is returned or renewed. Use the 'My Account' feature within the library Catalog to see a list of checked-out items and renew them; you may renew items one-time only.

  2. If your item is overdue for 30 days, you will receive a letter reminding you that your materials are "long overdue." At this point, a campus-wide hold is placed on your student record and is in effect until you have returned or paid for the material. WARNING: you will not be able to register for classes or obtain grades and transcripts if this happens. Your hold will be removed when the materials are returned. 

If you do not respond to the "long overdue" notice within the time period specified on the notice, the library will post a $54.25 per item fee against your student record. A notice of this fee and consequences is mailed to the patron at the time of posting. You will be instructed on how to pay the fine.

  • After a fee is posted, no arrangements may be made with the library.

  • Return of the materials will not negate the posted fee.

  • To restore campus privileges, the patron must go to the campus cashier and pay the $54.25 per item fee plus a college-imposed fee of $10.00 per incident.

  • All materials remain the property of the library.
