Late Equipment Policy
Students who keep equipment, kits, or tools beyond the checkout deadline and have not contacted the Proto Lab to explain their situation and receive a waiver, (illness or other emergencies) will not be allowed to sign any equipment out for one week for every day late. In certain cases, the Department may allow students to complete a community service project instead of serving out the entire privilege suspension.
Repeat offenders will lose access to the Proto Lab. If equipment is not returned at the end of a semester a student’s grades may be withheld, and their account with the Bursar’s Office will be charged for the missing/damaged items.
