When an equipment item becomes 10 days overdue, it will be declared lost, and the borrower will be issued a lost item billing (Notice of Fine or Fee) that includes the cost of the item, a $20.00 processing fee, and the maximum overdue charge as outlined in the information above.  Follow-up billings for any unpaid charges are issued weekly with the Statement of Fines and Fees notice.

From 31-60 days overdue, if the equipment item is returned in good condition, all charges except the overdue fine will be forgiven.

After 60 days overdue, if the item is returned in good condition, ONLY the lost item charge is removed.

Unpaid charges are transferred to the Bursar's Office for collection at 90 days after the original library billing date.

To avoid overdue and lost item charges, promptly return equipment items to the service desk from which they were first checked out.
