Overdue and Billing Policies
Students are responsible for managing all the material borrowed from Central Maine Community College and other libraries. For all material borrowed from Central Maine Community College’s Library, overdue notices are sent as a courtesy. Non receipt of notices does not absolve students of their responsibility. If the material is not returned, the Library assumes the material is lost and a bill for the replacement cost of the item plus a non-refundable $15.00 processing charge is mailed.
Books: Overdue notices are sent on the 1st and 8th days after the material is due and a bill is mailed 21 days after the material is due.
Media: Overdue notices are sent on the 1st and 8th days after the material is due and a bill is mailed 15 days after the item is due.
Reserves: Overdue notices are sent on the 1st and 2nd days after the material is due and a bill is sent on the 3rd day after the item is due.
Students are also responsible for items borrowed from other libraries and any fees or fines that may accrue from that library as well as the non-refundable $15.00 CM processing fee.
Bills are forwarded to the Business Office to be added to a student’s record for payment. If a student returns a billed Central Maine Community College Library item, the replacement cost is cancelled from the student’s bill, the processing fee, however, is not. Students who have any outstanding library fines and/or fees will have their borrowing privileges suspended, they will also not be able to register for classes, receive their grades, diplomas, and transcripts.
