Late Items

Late Items

  • An item is considered late when it has not been returned by the agreed upon time.
  • A reminder email will be sent two hours before the return time and two hours after the item was due.
  • Subsequent email reminders will be sent each day the item is late up to 7 days.
  • A phone call will be placed to the customer after items have reached 7 days late.
  • Once a student has reached 3 late returns in a semester, or an item extends 1 week overdue, a hold will be placed on their checkout account. This means that student will not be able to check out equipment for the remainder of the semester. Checkout privileges will return at the start of a new semester.
  • 7 days late: A hold in the value of the checked out device will be placed on the customer’s Boise State account. This will prevent the customer from registering for classes, accessing transcripts, graduating or using other University services.
  • 14 days late: A report will be filed with the City of Boise Police Department indicating the equipment has been stolen.

Damaged Items

Damaged Items

  • The person who checks out a device or item is responsible for the item when it is in their possession.
  • The person who signs for a device is responsible for any damage to the item and may be required to pay for repairs or replacement at the discretion of Customer Care Management.
  • A hold in the amount of repairs may be placed on your account. Until this amount is remitted, you will not be able to register for classes, access transcripts, graduate or use many other University services.
  • We are aware that accidents happen. Let us know as soon as they do. If you can’t return an item on time or it’s been damaged, lost, or stolen, call us and explain the situation. Return any damaged equipment as soon as possible. We can work with you.
