Completed copies (except exams) will be put in faculty mailboxes if the stack of copies fits. If the copies won't fit in a faculty mailbox, they can be picked in the main office. Copy requests turned in by graduate students can be picked up from the main office in most cases. Exams and quizzes will be locked up behind the front desk before and after they are copied. Please let staff/student hourly know if you are in the main office to pick up an exam/quiz and they will retrieve it for you from the exam cabinet.
Word Processing/Typing, and Printing Requests
The main office can assist with letters of recommendation, mailings, special projects, and data entry. You will need to allow ample time for larger projects. Please bring requests to Cindy (Office Manager) so she can appropriately assign the work and confirm procedures and completion deadlines.
Photocopying Request Forms can be used for Scanning Requests. If copies are needed from a book, journal, etc., note the page numbers or chapter number(s). Note on the form that you would like the document(s) scanned to PDF under “Special Instructions”. The file will be emailed to you and originals will be placed in your mailbox, unless otherwise indicated. Due to copyright restrictions, we will not photocopy entire books.

Most packages are delivered to the psychology main office.. When packages arrive, the recipient is notified via email that they have a package to pick up unless it will fit in their mailbox. If you do not pick the package up within a few days, you will receive a reminder email. Packages are placed in or on the cabinet to your left as you enter the main office. If you need assistance finding your package, please ask a student hourly or staff member. The office is not responsible for missing packages.

Make-up/Alternative Exam Requests
Forms can be found on the wall to the right of the copier in the main office. You must reserve a room for make-up exams in advance. Please remember that we leave at 5pm Monday through Thursday and 4:30pm on Fridays. The students must have their exams completed by 4:30pm on any day it is scheduled.. The staff will not proctor an exam. We will only place the student in the examination room. If the exam is a final, you must allot enough time for the student to take the exam as if they were taking it in the classroom. We will not schedule exams after 3:00 pm Monday through Friday. Final exams should be scheduled to allow 2.5-3 hours instead of 1.5 hours. Let the staff member or student hourly know if you are scheduling a Final so they can book the room accordingly.
Scantrons are available in the main office. As one of our cost cutting measures, we will only give scantrons to instructors that have more than 45 per class section unless you are a graduate student taking the PSYC 981 Teaching Psychology course.
The main office has access to all the office supplies. If we do not have what you need on-hand, we can easily order it within a couple of days, if it not a specialty item. Ink cartridges are supplied for departmental printers. The office must be made aware of your printer type and ink requirements in order to insure that ink will be stocked for your printer. We are not required to keep ink stocked for your personal or non-work related printers and cannot order it. Ask the main office staff if you need white or colored printer paper. It can be ordered by the box if paid for by a grant or personally if needed.
We have storage available in the attic of Fraser to store class, research, and administrative materials. We have the boxes and labels available through the front office that need to be used for this storage. We will only keep class materials for three years and graduate student research materials will only be kept for three years. All other materials will be disposed of according the university retention policy for those materials. To lighten the load of arranging multiple moves per year, as well as cost effectiveness, we will be taking boxes to the attic twice per year, approximately January and July.
