4 Day Loan Policy

All educational technology with a 4 day loan may be borrowed for only FOUR DAYS.

The fine for overdue educational technology is:

  • $10 non-refundable charge for 1 piece of technology every day it is overdue
  • $20 non-refundable charge for a set of technology every day it is overdue (a set is 1 piece of technology, i.e., a camcorder, iPad, digital voice recorder, etc., plus its supporting components)

For example:

If only a camcorder is 3 days overdue, then there is a $30 charge.

If a camcorder and any of its components (battery, power adapter, firewire cable, etc.) are 3 days overdue, then there is a $60 charge.

When charges are billed to Boston College Student Accounts, the borrower is responsible for all charges associated with each item.  The charges are dependent on the cost of replacing the particular item that is overdue or lost.

There will be a replacement charge for lost bags and tags.

Overdue charges will affect borrowing privileges at all Boston College Libraries.
