Q. How are fines calculated?

How much will I owe?

Answer

FOR STUDENTS

No fines for overdue main library items except recalls and dvd/vhs and items on reserve.

Fines for recalled items are $1.00 per day per item if not returned by the specified date

Videos must be checked out and returned at the Main Circulation Desk before closing on the date due.  Videos accrue a late fee of $2.00 per day. If a video is on reserve for a class, the late fee is $1.00 per hour.

Replacement Costs: after 3 overdue notices, you will be billed for the replacement cost of the item and a $10 processing fee per item.  Payment of exact change only may be made at the circulation desk, all other forms of payment may be made at the Student Accounts Office. Every month, unpaid overdues and replacement bills will be transferred to Student Accounts for processing; once this is done, your account will be unblocked.

Refunds:  Refunds or credits will be given for the replacement cost of materials if the item is returned within 6 months of the due date.  The $10 processing charge is non-refundable.

Summer Students and Authorized Summer Program Participants:  Borrowing privileges will be blocked if patron owes any fees or has overdue items.  After 3 overdue notices, you will be billed for replacement costs.
