Regular overdue book fines for most students are 25 cents per day. Other borrowed items have a higher overdue fine. For example, Chromebooks and calculators that go out for a week have a $5.00 per day late fee. The cost of a lost item will vary depending on what the item is. Check our borrowing policies and lost or damaged items policy for details. 

When you get a fine on your library account, you have about a week before the fine is sent to Student Accounts. Once the fine is sent to Student Accounts, you can pay for the fine. We cannot, and do not, take payment for fines in the library at the desk. Once the fine is with Student Accounts, you can pay your fine online using PantherPay by credit card, debit card, or electronic check. Or you can pay for your fine in person at the cashiers office with cash, check or money order.

 For more information about payments refer to the Student Financial Services's How to Pay page. 

Be aware, we do email due date reminders, overdue notices and lost item invoices to your Georgia State University email address as a courtesy. You should monitor your inbox for notices from to make sure they don’t go into your junk or spam folder. You are still responsible for any accrued fines for late or lost items regardless of whether you receive the reminder email. 

If you feel you have a fine or lost book on your account in error, the best thing you can do to resolve the issue is speak to a librarian at your campus. You can also email the library circulation team.

Visit or contact the library service desk at your campus for more help.

  1. How are students to return books they took out from the library now that the library is closed for the remainder of the semester?

  2. During the COVID-19 closure, you may keep any items checked out from the library until campus reopens. There will be no penalty.
