Limitations on Library Privileges

Overdue notices are issued as a courtesy via your Academy of Art University email account. Failure to receive reminders or overdue notices does not excuse borrowers from the responsibility of returning or renewing items on time to avoid penalties. Fees are automatically billed to your library account when materials are returned, and accrue for each day overdue as outlined in the above "Borrowing Privileges." The max overdue fine is $5.

Patrons with fines of $10 and over cannot check out materials. Patrons with $65 or over cannot check out materials, are prevented from grade report generation, and cannot receive transcripts (per University policy).
