Are there Fines for Overdue Materials?


You are responsible for returning or renewing materials on or before the due date.  Overdue fines are charged for certain materials that are not returned on the specified due date.  Please consult the Media Services Loan Guidelines for fines and fees associated with materials in this area. 

 

Will I Receive a Reminder Notice if an Item is Overdue?

 

  1. A reminder notice will be sent one day after the item’s due date.
  2. One week later, a second notice will be sent.
  3. After the second week, a third notice will be sent.
  4. If the overdue item is not returned after the third week past the due date, the item will be marked Lost. A notice with a charge for the replacement cost plus a processing fee will be sent. If the replacement cost and fee are not paid, further steps may be taken through the Bursar to place a hold on the student's transcript, deny registration for classes, and/or delay graduation. Civil prosecution may also be pursued.
  5. Reminder notices will be sent via email whenever possible.
