ELTE’s Library Council decided to use similar fees and fines in the libraries of the university network on December 14, 2012. This decision and the new fees and fines are mandatory for each library member. SEAS Library Rules and Regulations will be updated in a few weeks to comply with the University Library Service Rules and Regulations.

Two more sections are extremely important to bear in mind:

  • According to 137. A. § (2) in Academic regulation for students (HKR in Hungarian)

„A student of ELTE owing a library fine can not register for exams, pick up his/her grade book, take exams, register for the following semester, or take his/her final exam.”

  • According to 9. § (5) in ELTE ULS Rules and Regulations (EKSZ in Hungarian)

„As long as a reader has overdue document(s) or outstanding fine(s), he/she can not use library services or borrow book(s) in any ELTE member library.”

All fees and fines collected are officially forwarded to the Faculty budget on a regular basis.
