Policies & Fines



Charges to your account may be paid at the Circulation Desk on Floor 1 of McCain Library or mailed to the library. Note: Circulation privileges may be blocked on the system for persons owing $30.00 or more in fines, or for failure to respond to recall notices.

Fines may be paid in cash, check made out to Agnes Scott College, or with a credit/debit card (which incurs a small convenience fee).


Patrons who accumulate $30.00 or more in fines and/or have (a) billed item(s) on their library accounts will have a hold placed on their Agnes Scott Registrar account. As a result, your library borrowing privileges will be suspended, and students will be unable to register for classes or receive transcripts until all fees have been paid.
