Imaging Center | General Information

Students must submit files to the IC that are print-ready via the online print request forms found to the right. At this time, students will no longer be able to drop off files in person or on a USB drive. 

All print & binding jobs must be picked up from the IC by appointment. Students and faculty can make an appointment on our Calendly site.

Methods of Payment

Cash / Credit Card / CCS SmART Card (flex)

Students can choose to be invoiced directly from our Square Retail register. You will have to pay for prints prior to picking them up. There is a $10.00 minimum required for advance payment.

The Imaging Center does not accept personal check, student charge, credit or debit cards

Price Quotes

IC Techs will send you a print estimate when a print job is submitted via CCS email during our business hours. You will have the opportunity to approve the estimate and your job will be processed. If you submit a job outside of those hours, expect an estimate to be sent within one hour of opening the following business day.  

If you do not receive an estimate or price quote, please let us know. It is highly recommended that you calculate your own job cost prior to coming into the Imaging Center.
