Q. What are the fines or fees for overdue TCC items?
From the Use of Library Materials Policy for more information:
All patrons are personally responsible for the care, proper use, and timely return of the library materials that they have borrowed.
If materials are not returned by the due date, all library privileges shall be suspended until all overdue materials are returned or all amounts owed to the college for replacement are paid in full.
When circulating materials are more than 30 days overdue, or course reserve materials are more than one day overdue, or iPads are more than one week overdue, the patron shall not be permitted to register for classes and the college will not issue transcripts, certificates, or degrees to the patron until all overdue materials are returned or all amounts owed to the college are paid in full.
When materials are more than 135 days overdue, the college shall send the patron a bill for the overdue materials. The obligation for the materials shall then be handled in accordance with TCC Policy 4203 Receivables and Collections.
When materials are more than 180 days overdue, return of the overdue material will not result in refund of any payment or cancellation of the existing debt. Patrons must pay the replacement charge for the materials and the additional fee in order to return their account to good standing.
The standard replacement charge for lost or damaged materials is $50.00 per item. The library reserves the right to charge the actual replacement cost for lost or damaged circulating materials. The replacement charge for lost or damaged course reserve materials is the actual replacement cost. The replacement charge for lost or damaged iPads is $450.00, and the replacement cost for iPad accessories is the actual replacement cost.
