Loan Periods and Fines

Material checked at Library Services and Fine and Performing Arts

The following represents loan periods and fines for undergraduate students.  Faculty and Graduate students have extended check out privileges.  For information see Extended Loans page.

Note:  All patrons will be assessed the lost item fee, a non-refundable overdue fee and a non-refundable processing fee for items that have reached the maximum level overdue.  The attached table illustrates the individual rates. If a lost item is returned after a charge has been created, the replacement fee only will be refunded.  No refunds will be given and no replacements will be accepted after 1 year from due date.    Exact replacement will be considered in lieu of the replacement fees for most items. If an exact replacement item is provided, the non-refundable processing fee must still be paid. Fine rates for recalled items increase by .50/day for students and $2.00/day for faculty and P & S employees for failure to respond to a recall. Failure to return recalled items may result in loss of library check out privileges.  For Bill and Fine information for Faculty and Professional and Scientific staff members see Faculty Fine Rates.
