Loans

Non-degree students may borrow up to 750 regular circulating items on a four-week loan but may not borrow non-circulating items. You must present your Cardinal Card at the circulation desk to borrow circulating items. Non-degree students may renew any item that has not been recalled, in person or through their online library account, My Library Account. Most items may be renewed three times. Non-degree students are subject to all recall and reserve loan policies and may not borrow if they have five or more overdue items, one recalled item, or owe $5.00 or more in fines.
