e) Unpaid fines and charges incurred by students are transferred to the Business Office in December, April and August.

h) The replacement charge for a book, in addition to any late return fine incurred, will normally be the actual cost of an item or a standard charge of $75.00, except in the case of more expensive items when the patron may be required to pay such sum of money as the University Librarian may consider necessary toward replacement or compensation.
