Overdue Fines

The following chart lists the most common types of charges, their rates and their maximums.  When a book or picture file envelope becomes 30 days overdue, it is categorized as "lost" and your account will be assessed a market rate replacement cost and processing fee. If the item is subsequently returned you will be responsible only for any overdue fine. NOTE:  Students are financially responsible for damaged or not returned equipment.

Accounts with a 30 day late item(s) will be placed on Library Hold (also known as a Banner Hold). Student accounts will be blocked from class registration, receiving transcripts, refund checks and diplomas, etc. until the account is paid in full.

NOTE: For students ordering transcripts, once the hold has been released the transcript ordering application will process the order within the day. If the hold/fine is not resolved within 30 days, the order is cancelled and you be will notified and not charged for the transcript order. 

All Library fines and fees are paid at the Access Services Desk using your Campus Card.  You can add cash to your card using the PHiL machine located near the Research Services Desk on the 5th floor (or the with the PHiL machine located in Computer Commons in Feldman). Alternatively, you can add money to your Student ID with a debit/credit card by accessing your eAccount. Money is successfully added once you receive a confirmation email.

Questions, concerns, comments regarding fines and fees can be directed to the Access Services Managers. Please include your full name, @ number, and any pertinent information regarding your account or overdue/lost items in question.

When you receive a Lost Summary Bill email, each lost item will have a estimated replacement and processing fees of $120. If the items are truly lost, please contact the Access Services Desk to determine the actual replacement fees as generally the fees will be lower than $120. We are unable to refund to you any unused money placed on your ID card.
