Equipment Checkout Policy Revised Fall 2014


If a student is late returning equipment to the Equipment Checkout Room, the student loses all checkout privileges. In addition, a return that is two days late may result in up to a letter deduction on the student's course grade. If equipment is kept five days past the due date, it is considered stolen, and University Police will be notified.
