  • Bill for fines and/or Replacement Cost after 28 days overdue.

Even if you renew the overdue items, you are still responsible to pay the late fees which you incurred between the time the item was due and the day you renewed it. If you have any questions or concerns about library fines and/or fees, please contact the Library Services staff at the campus from which you checked out the materials.

Failure to pay student account balances, including library fines, can result in having a HOLD placed on your student account, which blocks you from registration and obtaining important information such as transcripts.
