EXCEPTION: Laptops not returned within 48 hours will be billed to Student Accounts immediately, and you will be charged a non-refundable $10.00 Lost Processing Fee, payable at Student Accounts. Failure to return the laptop to the library within 30 days will result in a Lost Item Replacement Fee of $1800 added to your Student Account. This fee will only be waived if you return the laptop to the library.
Students with delinquent accounts are not eligible for advance registration or readmission to any term nor for receiving transcripts or recommendations. Collection fees for outstanding debts owed to the University may be assessed to the student.
If items are returned in good condition, all replacement fees associated with the item will be waived. Lost item process fees will still apply. Please note, however; no refunds will be issued if the item is found and returned after payment has already been made. No exceptions.
Payments in cash only can be made at the library. For all other payment methods, please go to Student Accounts.
