To check out any materials you must have a valid current student ID. Books are checked out for 8 weeks, DVDs for 1 week, and no overdue fines are charged. If you fail to return any items, a hold will be placed on your account in Banner. You will then not be allowed to register for the next semester, check your final grades, or receive a transcript until you have returned the items.

What is the procedure for getting, updating or replacing a Student ID?

Student IDs are made in the Libraries. New students will receive their first ID free of charge. If the ID is lost or stolen, there is a $5.00 replacement fee. Please bring the receipt paid and your current class schedule.
