  • The student is responsible for removing and erasing any personal documents, files, and login information before returning the laptop.
  • The College is not responsible for any lost data, documents, or applications the student may have saved to the laptop. Devices will be restored to default meaning everything will be erased upon return.
  • The student may download and install applications, but cannot otherwise alter the device. This includes alterations of the operating system, hardware, and application of external skins or stickers. Alterations will be considered damage and result in charges for repair. 

Returning Devices

  • Devices are due back to the library on the Monday after the last day of the semester they are checked out.
  • Devices cannot be dropped in the library book drop! Return devices directly to a library staff person, only.
  • The student must delete any personal documents, files, and login information before returning laptops.

  • Devices will be checked out on a semester-by-semester basis.
    • The student may request to renew devices, without having to bring the devices back to the library, provided they are consistently enrolled.
    • It is the student’s responsibility to contact the library to renew devices each semester.
    • If the student fails to renew a device, it will be considered late or lost and replacement fees will be applied to the student’s bursar account.
  • A fee of $20.00 is assessed each day the device is late for up to seven days. After seven days, the device is considered lost and the cost to replace the device and associated components will be assessed to the Student’s bursar account. If the Student returns the device in good condition within 30 days of the date, the replacement fee will be removed, however, the late fees totaling $140.00 still apply.
