Answer

Fines

Overdue Items

For books and media materials a fine of twenty-five cents ($0.25) is assessed for each day that the item is overdue. The maximum fine will not exceed $10.00 for each item. Fines will be levied, retroactively, one week after due date.

Fines on reserve materials are based on the time at which the item is due. A fine is charged at the rate of sixty cents ($0.60) per hour, or fraction thereof, for each item that is overdue. The maximum fine will not exceed $10.00.

Lost and Damaged Items

An item will be declared lost if it is not returned 39 days after the due date.

Patrons who have lost or damaged an item beyond repair shall pay $107.00 per item. (This includes a $67.00 lost item replacement fee, $10.00 for a maximum fine, and a $30.00 lost processing fee.)

The Student “Bar List”

Students who have a charge levied against them will find their names on a “Bar List“ which will prevent them from registering for the next semester or from graduating. These students must obtain clearance from the Learning Resources Division to have their names removed from the bar list. The procedure is as follows:

  • A bill for the charge is obtained at the circulation desk.
  • The bill is paid at the Cashier's Office in Building 39, Room 201.
  • The receipt for the bill paid is brought back to the circulation technician for clearance.
