Lost or Damaged Library Materials

When library materials including laptops are damaged or lost, the borrower will be billed for the replacement costs. Until the student’s library liability is cleared, a hold placed on the student account will prohibit registration for future courses and/or receipt of transcripts. Any library materials obtained through interlibrary loan are an extension of the NCC library and therefore are bound by the same return policies.
