Overdue & Lost Fees
Overdue fines are 50 cents/day up to $16.00 maximum per item. For lost items, we charge the actual replacement cost plus overdue fines. If a replacement cost is not available, the default fees are $50 hardback; $15 trade paperbacks, $10 mass-market paperbacks, $15 for cassettes and CD's, and $25 for circulating videos.

Reserve Materials

All our reserve material has a two hour loan period.

There is NO grace period.  If the item is returned or discharged one minute past the due time the student is charged $2.00.

It’s $2.00 an hour up to a maximum of $8.00.  The same fine structure applies to the keys to the Group Study Rooms.


The late fine is $10.00 per item per hour, maximum $100.00 per item

Note: Class registration is not permitted until outstanding bills are paid.
