Visit your division office to find information about their photocopying policy and capacity.
Syllabus printing requests should be sent directly to the College Store for processing, packaging, and preparation for purchase. Syllabus request forms are available at the College Store and/or Division Offices.
- Requests for duplication may be submitted online. A budget code and dean’s signature are required for specially funded programs (e.g., student organizations, sports camps, etc.).
- Duplicating Services houses the campus mailroom. To request mail be distributed on campus (e.g., a flier publicizing an event), faculty should request the campus distribution list for the total number of administrators, faculty, and staff by division and/or area and follow the written instructions on the distribution list. Mailroom personnel will not distribute flyers, brochures, or anything else that is not properly bundled according to the written instructions on the distribution list. The distribution of mail used for personal gain is prohibited.
- Duplicating Services does not sort bulk mail. For mass mailings to the community, individual departments, divisions, or programs may contract with outside vendors. The college has a non-profit organization bulk permit number that may be used and/or printed directly on the publication, but prior permission must be obtained from Administrative Services. The cost of mailing and date of distribution must also be reported to Duplicating Services to ensure adequate funds are available in the account. Areas are expected to cover the costs for specialized mailings.
