Late Fees, Lost Items & Overdue Notices

Late Fees 

Late fees are charged on circulating and Reserves material. Fees vary depending on the type of material.

Lost Materials

Immediately report any material that is lost. Three charges accrue on lost materials (1) the replacement price of the item, (2) $15.00 billing fee, (3) and a $15.00 processing fee.

Overdue Notices, Fines, and Fees

Failure to receive overdue notices in no way relieves the borrower of the obligation to return the library material by the date it is due or to pay the late fines. The person to whom the item is charged is responsible for the return of the item checked out and for any fines incurred. If an ID card is lost, it should be reported to the Circulation Desk at once and a duplicate should be requested at the Student Affairs Office, Administration 214. Mailing addresses should be kept current through the student Banner account, or ask at the Circulation/Reserves desk.

Courtesy notices are sent to remind patrons material is almost due. Once material is overdue, three notices are sent out weekly by email. If the material still is not returned by the time the material is four weeks overdue, it goes into billing. Please read the Overdue Fines & Billing Fees

It is your responsibility to keep up with the due date. You can double check due dates online through Quest, by going to "My Library Account":
