There is NO GRACE PERIOD for overdue items. 

Hourly loan-period items should NEVER be returned to a book drop. Instead, always return them to a clerk at a circulation desk.

Overdue fees accrue based on the schedule of the library that owns the item. Overdue fees do not accrue on holidays or other periods in which the library is closed. Books that are returned to a book drop when the library is closed will be checked in, backdated to the last day when the library was open. Books are never due on a day that the library is closed.

All patrons who fail to respond to a recall notice, including faculty, must pay recall fees. Library privileges will be suspended until the recalled item is returned and the fee is paid.

Library privileges will be suspended or revoked if users exceed certain thresholds set by the library. Students owing money to the library will be placed on registrar hold, which prevents registration and course changes. Additionally, diplomas and transcripts will be held until the charges have been completely cleared at the library.

Lost Items

Type of Replacement Replacement Cost Processing Fee
Regular Cost of item or $70.00 $35.00
