Overdue Books and Fines

National University Library does not charge fees on overdue resources. Late fees, however are charged for reserve materials and test kits.  Reserve materials are subject to a late fee of 50 cents per day per item and test kits are subject to a late fee of $1.00 per day per item.  Once a fine reaches $5.00, you may not check out more books, and a library hold will be placed on your grades. The maximum late fee that will be assessed is $10.00 per item.

Fines apply to all students, staff, and alumni. The first notice of an overdue item is sent when the item is 7 days overdue, the second notice at 14 days; and a bill for replacement costs at 30 days. If the material is returned, replacement and processing fees will not be assessed, but the maximum late fee of $10.00 will apply.

Lost or Damaged Books

All Borrowers are responsible for repair or replacement costs for books lost or returned damaged. The replacement cost is $30.00 plus a non-refundable $10.00 processing fee.

Fine Payment

Payment by cash, check or money order can be made in person at the library.

Otherwise, checks or money orders made out to National University Library can be mailed to: National University Library Attn: Circulation Dept. 9393 Lightwave Ave San Diego, CA 92123.
