Outstanding Fines, Fees and Charges

When your library fines reach or exceed $50.00, the library will place a hold on your library and University accounts.  This hold prohibits use of library services, including:

  • Checking out and renewing items
  • Consortium loans
  • Interlibrary loans.

In addition, upon placement of the hold, the following University services will be suspended:

  • Registering for classes
  • Receiving your diplomas
  • Obtaining University transcripts

Reinstating Library Account and Removing Holds

To reinstate your accounts, return all overdue items (if not lost or damaged) and pay the balance owed.  You may pay the balance owed at the circulation desk or in the library's administrative office during business hours.
