Fines Schedule

Paying Fines: Student library charges are transferred to University Billing on a monthly basis. As a result, library debts are included on students' University bills and may result in a 'hold' on a student's record. Prior to being transferred to University Billing, fines will be viewable through the View Your Own Record function in My Catalog. Recent charges that have not yet been sent to University Billing and all non-student charges can be paid at Olin Library Circulation (sorry, no credit cards). Once any charges have been transferred, student payments can be made at Student Financial Services located at Room 75 North Brookings Hall or payments can be mailed to University Billing P.O. Box 14627 St. Louis, MO 63150-4627

Details for library charges, past and present, are always available upon request from Olin Library Circulation.
