Loan periods and fines & fees

Fines and fees for overdue, lost, or damaged items vary depending on the type of material and where you have borrowed it from, as outlined in the table below. 

After a circulating item has been overdue for 35 days, its status automatically changes to “Lost” and you will be billed for the cost of replacing the item.  When you return the item we will waive replacement costs.  You will still be liable for any overdue fines (only short-loan items incur fines).

Student patrons with accumulated fines over $75 may lose borrowing privileges and may be blocked from registration until the fines have been paid.
