The UTRGV University Library charges a lost book fee, explained below, for books once they are 28 days late and marked "Billed," plus a non-refundable $15 processing fee for each book.

Library patrons will be charged a lost book fee determined by Library of Congress Call Number as per UT System Board of Regents. Prices are determined by the Average North American Academic Book prices as listed in the latest edition of the library and Book trade Almanac. Book prices will be updated biannually (every even year.)

The book cost will be refunded by the Comptroller's Office (via mail) on books returned within one month. The $15.00 processing fee is not refundable. The Library will place a hold on a student's transcript if the student has an overdue book or overdue fees.

Fines and fees need to be paid at the library Circulation Desk with cash, check or credit   card. Fines can be paid by phone if using a credit card. Please contact the Circulation Department, if you have any questions about borrowing policies or procedures.
