Fines and Fees

There is no charge for overdue books, phone chargers, dry erase markers, calculators, or Course Reserves. Extremely overdue, lost, and damaged items will be billed to the patron's account accordingly (see below).

DVD late fees accumulate at $1 per item for each day past the due date.

Billing for Extremely Overdue, Lost, or Damaged Items: When items become a month overdue (or two weeks overdue in the case of DVDs and extended course reserves), are lost, or are returned damaged, the patron is billed the replacement cost and a $15 non-refundable processing fee for each item.

New Mexico Tech students, faculty, and staff are billed through their accounts at the Cashier's Office. Once your bill is paid, bring the receipt to the Circulation Desk so library staff can update your account.

Special and Community Borrowers must pay their fines at the Circulation Desk (cash or check).
