  • Saint Mary students will not receive grades, transcripts, or diplomas.

  • A fine of 25 cents per hour per item up to a maximum of $15 per item is charged for reserve materials returned late.

  • Three months past the due date, all patrons will be fined the replacement cost of the item plus a $20 processing fee.
