Faculty Handbook

Faculty Copier Policy


The WESTCONNECT Card will allow faculty members to produce copies on designated machines throughout both campuses. All faculty receive a copy plan on their WESTCONNect Card.  A list of machines is available on the university’s website, www.wcsu.edu/westconnect/cardservices.asp#Faculty_Copy_Plans.

How To:

All faculty members are required to obtain a WESTCONNECT Card in order to use the copy card system, this can be done at the WESCONNECT Card Office located in Old Main, lower-level, facing the Student Center.

In order to request copy card credit, not to exceed 1,000 copies at a time, a faculty member must send a written request to the WESTCONNECT Card Office staff. This request may be handled via e-mail to RequestWestconnect@wcsu.edu   Please include the following mandatory information; your name, department, active semester and number of copies requested.

Problems with a copy machine, and requests for repair, may be reported through the Purchasing Office at 837-8657.

Terms and Conditions:

The use of the copy credit is solely for academic purposes related to employment at WCSU. The WESTCONNect Card is intended for use by the individual to whom it was issued, and must not be transferred to another. Any lost or stolen cards must be reported immediately either in person at the Card Office (during business hours) or via telephone (837-9311).

Each semester active full-faculty members are given a 6,000 copy credit on their card, active part-time faculty are given a 1,000 copy credit on their card. There is no cash value given in association with copy card credits, therefore the value cannot be transferred for the purposes of purchasing other services.

Copier Instructions

  1. Swipe your WESTCONNect Card.  Make sure the magnetic stripe is facing the correct way as indicated on the reader.
  2. The card reader will display a count of 1,000 and begin to count down from 1,000.  This amount simply indicates a block of 1,000 copies is activated.  If you have more than 1,000 copies on your copy plan you may copy more than 1,000 copies; however, you will be required to swipe your card again.
  3. You will now see the green light on the "start" button of the copier.  At this point you may begin to use the copier controls as necessary, i.e. choose size of paper, number of copies, etc.
  4. When you are finished copying you may hit the button labeled "Quit/Enter" in the lower, right-hand corner of the keypad.  If you forget to hit this button, the card reader will "time-out", or cancel automatically, after 60 seconds.

If you have any problems, please contact the WESTCONNect Office at 837-9311 or via-email at RequestWestonnect@wcsu.edu
