EQUIPMENT LOAN FEE
Film/Digital camera loans are $125 for the semester. Payments can only be made through Mason Money. You can add funds to your account HERE. The payment breaks down to be:
$50 (NON-REFUNDABLE LOAN FEE)
At the end of the semester after you have returned the equipment in good condition your deposit fee of $75 will be returned to your Mason Money Account.
If you have any missing items or the camera is damaged, it will come out of your deposit fee to fix or replace any items. You assume full responsibility for the camera and will be responsible to replace if it is lost or stolen. See the contract below for further details.
