Overdue Fines and Replacement Fees 
Students will be unable to borrow materials if they have overdue items or fines of $10.00 or more on their library account. 

Students with items more than 2 or 3 weeks overdue will have replacement and a non-refundable processing fee added to their campus account. This fee may create a hold on their account, which will prevent them from registering for classes and obtaining transcripts until the item is returned or the fees are paid.
