  7. If the item is renewable but you receive the error message, “The due date is already set to the renewed due date” when attempting to renew, this means that your CSUN ID expires before the renewal due date. 
    Due date already set to the renewed due date
    This could be caused by one of the cases below:
    1. Your ID is expired because you have not registered for Fall 2020 classes yet. You will need to wait until you register before renewing your items.

    2. Your ID is expired because you graduated in Spring 2020 and/or will not register for the Fall 2020 semester. In this case, please return your items before the due date to the CSUN Campus Store from August 17, 2020 to August 31, 2020. Be sure to check Campus Store operating hours before you go.

Reasons for "NOT RENEWABLE"

  1. If the item shows as “NOT RENEWABLE” because of an active library fee over $9.99, hover over the NOT RENEWABLE icon to see the amount owed.

    In order to renew your item, you must pay off the library fee first before you can renew. To do this, select the “FEES” menu option and click on the “Pay” link to see directions on how to pay off your fine online with a credit/debit card or go to the Storefront directly.
