Scanners Around Campus
With our online application program, you may be required to scan documents into the application program. If you do not have access to your own scanner, there are many places to use scanners on campus. First, we have added a scanner in our office located at Pearse 166. It is free for student usage. There are also flatbed scanners available in the Library Learning Commons. There is no charge for scanning copies to a CD-ROM or USB memory stick on the flatbed scanners. The library also has three copy machines that provide the option to scan materials and save the pdfs to a portable drive. These machines are located in the Media and Reserve Library and the Daniel M. Soref Learning Commons. Copiers may charge 25 cents per copy and require the use of a print card.
