Fees

Late Fees & Replacements

There are no daily fines for lost or unreturned books if the book is returned or renewed within 60 days of the due date.

  • If a Regent University item is not returned within 60 after the due date, but prior to 120 days after the due date, a $25.00 non-refundable late fee (per item) will be assessed.
  • If the item is not returned within 120 days after the due date, a flat, non-refundable replacement fee of $75.00 (per item) will be applied to the patron's account, and the book can no longer be returned.
  • If items are lost or damaged beyond repair, the patron will be charged for the replacement of the item. The replacement cost  is $75.00.

We will accept replacement copies before items are 120 days overdue.

 

How to Pay

You can pay your late fees and replacement fees in person with cash at the Resource Desk but the easiest way is with a debit or credit card online here

 

If You Wait Too Long to Pay

Late returns or a delay in paying Late/Replacement Fees may result in a block being placed on the student’s university account. Students will not be permitted to register for subsequent terms, grades will be held, and the University will not issue diplomas, official transcripts, etc.

Lost & Found

Personal property is the responsibility of the individual patron. Lost items found in the Library are held at the Resource Desk for no more than one week. Each Friday all lost and found items are taken to the Student Services Department.

Suspension of Borrowing Privileges

The library circulation computer system will automatically block a patron's library privilege if he/she fails to pay library fines or return overdue books. A system block will prevent a patron from accessing electronic library databases, registering for classes, or obtaining university transcripts.
