  • Two-week loan items with an active hold list cannot be renewed for an additional two-weeks.
  • If you graduated in Spring 2022 and/or will not be enrolled in the Fall 2022 semester items cannot be renewed past September 22, 2022.

    This could be caused by one of the cases below:
    1. You attempted to renew an item that is already renewed for the maximum two-week period or the item has already been renewed two weeks from today’s date.
    2. You are not enrolled in the Fall 2022 semester and cannot renew past September 22, 2022.
