Photocopying

Photocopying services are available in the Central Services Copy Center, which is located in Room CC3-412 behind the information area. A Copy Clerk is always there to help assist you in filling out and running your orders, as well as locating your copies for pick-up. Order forms for photocopying/printing jobs are located on the counter outside the Copy Center. Immediate service copies (“while you wait”) may be made from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday. 500 copies is a maximum copying guideline for those that are expecting immediate jobs to be finished within one hour of time (under 3 hours for color paper). If you are a staff member or manager and have a small job, you may use the self-serve machine located in the Copy Center

Costs

The cost to your department for immediate walk-up service is $.023 per copy for instruction and $.0325 for Administration. There is also 48 hour service which costs your department just $.005 per copy for instruction and $.015 for Administration. Requests that have 48 hours check marked should have a due date that allows two full work days to complete. Please help your department control costs by only reproducing materials which are absolutely necessary. Many departments overspend their photocopy budget every year. Please secure Department Chair approval for significant copying or printing jobs.

Printing/Stock Requests, Exams, and Other Orders

During the same hours of operation, printing services are available for requests of 500 or more copies, and can accomidate more complex orders such as: booklets, readers, folding, padding and cutting jobs, NCR jobs, and special paper and stationary requests. All printing/Stock requests require a minimum of 72 hours to complete. The cost is also dependent on the complexity of the request and quality of materials involved. A notification slip regarding completion of your job/s will be placed in your mailbox for pickup in the Copy Center when the job exceeds the mailbox capacity. Exams that are dropped off in the security box in the mailroom are automatically packaged and completed on a 48 hour basis. Exams will not be placed in your mailbox due to securtiy reasons. Therefore, you will always get a notification of completion to pick up Exams in Central Services. Immediately requested Exams will not be packaged or secured. Please allow extra time if you need your materials sent to the Brentwood Center. In this instance, the total turnaround time for copying/printing and delivery will take a minimum of three work days. Also, please note that you should allow extra time for the processing of your materials during the first two weeks of each semester and the two weeks before finals. Refer to the Printing and Photocopying guidelines available at the Copy Center for specific information regarding services and turnaround times.

Remember that instructional packets of considerable length should be considered for sale through the Bookstore, thus avoiding a charge to your department’s budget.. “Modules” or class readers and workbooks fall into this category. Please contact the Print Shop for specifics before submitting for print.

Please also note that Central Services cannot reproduce copyrighted material without official copyright clearance.
