Fines and Fees at the Hurley Convergence Center (HCC)

Revised 01/07/2022

Definitions 

  • Late Fines – Fines are accrued on a daily basis for each item a patron might have checked out. Each day past the due date that an item is not returned it will accrue a $5 late fine.  So, if you return an item two days late you will accrue a $10 fine. If you have two items and they are both two days late you will accrue a $20 fine.   
  • Lost – An item is declared “LOST” when it has not been returned for 7 days after the due date.

Overview

Even though the checkout system (Alma) automatically applies a dollar value to all Late Fines, we do not require patrons to pay these fines. Instead, the fines work as a strike system. Fines will be waived a certain number of times each semester as noted below under “Late Fine Policy.” After the maximum number of infractions, the patron’s account will be placed on hold, and they will no longer be able to check out equipment at the HCC for the rest of the semester.  

Note that this hold is for HCC equipment only. Patrons can still check out books from UMW Libraries when their HCC account is on hold.

The above policy does not apply to Lost Item Replacements Costs. If a patron keeps an item longer than seven days past the due date, it is declared lost, and the patron is charged the replacement cost of the item. The patron may return the item to get the charge refunded or if the item is lost the replacement costs will be sent to Student Accounts in Lee Hall where they can pay for the lost item. Lost Item Replacement Costs are never waived.

Late Fines Policy

Hold after 3 strikes

A patron may accrue Late Fines up to $15 twice per semester without repercussions. The third time a patron keeps an item past the due date in a semester, their account will be blocked for the rest of that semester.

Lost Item Policy

Hold after 2 strikes

A patron may accrue Lost Item Replacement Costs only once per semester without repercussions. The second time a patron keeps an item long enough that it is declared lost (this happens 7 days after an item’s due date), their account will be blocked for the rest of that semester. In addition, a student’s account will remain blocked until the lost item is returned, or the replacement cost is paid.

HCC staff reserve the right to extend this block into additional semesters at their discretion.
