Student Information

Audio Visual Center & CCS Studio Policies

Reservations for equipment are available two weeks ahead. Equipment can be checked out for up to 72 hours.  Students are not allowed to check out the same equipment consecutive days in a row.

Faculty and Staff may reserve equipment for testing and use, however if a student needs the same reserved equipment for assignment or project completion, the Faculty or Staff reservation will be cancelled.

Students and faculty are required to have their CCS ID badge present in order to check out studio spaces and equipment.

Students must sign a checkout agreement form in order to checkout equipment. If the checkout agreement and equipment are abused, check out privileges can be revoked indefinitely.

View the Audio Visual Center & CCS Studio Guide.

Late Fee Policy

If a student is late with equipment and until the equipment is returned, a PER HOUR, PER ITEM late fee, based on check out open hours, will be issued.  See list in the AVC for fee rates. A student with an outstanding late fee will not be allowed to check out equipment from the AVC or the Photo Checkout areas.


Lighting and sound workshops are conducted on a class-by-class basis. Talk to your instructor about scheduling a workshop or visit the AVS in Walter B. Ford 109 for information on Lighting and Sound Certification Workshops and to sign up for an upcoming class session.
