Returning Your Materials

Feel free to drop any materials in the drop box on East Campus, whether or not you checked it out on East.  We are waiving overdue fees, but do need to get material back. So please, next time you are on campus, return any calculators or books you checked out while we were in remote instruction.

There are two drop boxes available. One is along North Campus Way, which you can enter from College Ave. You can use it without having to park your car. Just hop out and drop your item in (even calculators)!

 

 

There is also a return on the side of the East Campus Library and Learning Center building. Walk up the stairs as if you are going to enter the building, then look on the wall to the left.

Questions? E-mail Michael Leamy at leamym@yosemite.edu

You will not be charged a late fee if you return an item late, but you will be charged for the item.
