There are fees that occur when a book or other item is borrowed from the library and not returned on time or is lost or damaged.‚Äč

Overdue Fines and Lost Material Fees 

  • A book that is 15 – 28 days overdue will have a $3.00 overdue fine assessed.
  • Books that are returned 29 or more days late are considered lost and will each incur a $5.00 lost-processing fine.
  • If a book is lost or heavily damaged users will be charged the replacement cost of the book. If the book is no longer available for replacement purchase, the default charge is $45.00.
  • Fines and/or fees are paid at the Bursar’s Office.

    PLEASE NOTE: Failure to pay fines and/or fees may result in the suspension of borrowing privileges and an inability to register for classes, graduate or get a copy of your transcript until the account is paid-in-full.
