Overdue Policies

  • Overdue notices are automatically sent to the MCC email account. Please check your spam folder.
  • There are no daily overdue fines on most circulating books; however, there are fines on reserve items, equipment, audiobooks, and study rooms. Contact the circulation staff at 762-0403 for more information.
  • Students will be billed for any items that are 60 days overdue. A hold will be placed on their account until either the item is returned (in similar condition that it was first borrowed) or pays the replacement price for the item. Until either action is taken, students with holds on their accounts will not be able to borrow other items from the library, register for classes, request a formal transcript from the college
