How Do I Remove a Hold?

A hold may be placed on your student account when library fines and lost book fees accumulate over $25.

Fines and holds that have been paid will be lifted from your account within 24 hours (or the next business day).

If you need a hold lifted sooner, take your payment receipt to the Check-Out & Reserves Desk. Note: This service may not be available late nights or weekends; call first to find out.

Was My Payment Received?

You should receive an emailed receipt shortly after you make your online payment. Please save a copy of this receipt so you can show you paid the fine, if requested to do so by the library staff.

Can I Appeal My Fines?

If you feel a library fine is unjustified, you may appeal it.
