Reasons for "NOT RENEWABLE"

  1. If the CMS equipment shows as “NOT RENEWABLE” and the hover reason shows as “The item cannot be renewed since there is a request for this item.” this is because the item you want to renew has a wait list. You will need to return this item by the due date to the LTS Desk during the hours listed on our website.
