Off Campus Printing
The use of commercial, off-campus vendors for printing and copying requires approval in advance from the Duplicating Services Department and the processing of an Authorization For Off Campus Duplicating/Printing Form.
All printing generated by Duplicating Services is for legitimate faculty or business use only. Personal printing of any kind, whether for students or employees of the University, are not allowed.
Preparation of original copy should be made on plain white bond paper as quality impressions and long runs require excellent contrast of originals. Margins must be at least 3/8" on all four sides and should be as free from smudges as possible.
In submitting materials, departments must provide a Request for Duplicating Services Recharge Form, signed by an authorized person designated by the department. Duplicating Services personnel are available to assist in preparing these forms. Duplicating and printing needs should be anticipated as far in advance as possible. Services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Making copies of some materials is prohibited by Federal and/or copyright laws which must be observed. Money, bonds, and immigration documents will not be duplicated. Compliance with copyright laws is the responsibility of the department submitting the materials.
