Overdue, Bills & Courtesy Notices

Email notices are sent as a courtesy. Library materials are due on the due date indicated whether or not you receive a notice. Check My Account/Library Card for due dates.

All notices are sent to your FIT email account, or you can have these notices forwarded to a preferred email account. Please add [email protected] to your email contacts so that notices are not sent to your spam box.  

Students with outstanding overdue materials and/or fines will have their registrations blocked; refund checks, transcripts and other official college documents held and will not be able to borrow other library materials until their accounts have been cleared.

Students must add monetary funds to their student IDs either using the Campus Pay Kiosk on the 5th floor or via eAccounts. Payment is made at the Library Services Desk. If you have lost Library material please confirm with Access Services the amount to be paid before adding money to your ID. We are unable to refund any unused funds placed on your student ID. Refunds are not given if replacement costs are paid and items are later found.

Faculty, staff, and administrators are not charged overdue fines, but ARE responsible for the cost of lost book replacements.
