Use and Policy Agreement

User Agreement Form 

MMAS Use Agreement

Please register at the MMAS by signing the Use and Policy Agreement (pdf link above). Bring the form to the studio on your first visit to get your account number. Please be prepared to show your TC/Columbia University ID at that first visit.

MMAS policies are based on computer lab policies set by CIS for student computer labs at Teachers College. Some additional procedures are specified as well, particularly with regard to asset management. Please be aware that students must own and use removable hard drives. No personal data can be stored on the computers in the MMAS. Please ask if you have any questions about this policy.

Please note that only students in the Program in Art and Art Education are able to register for studio use.

Print Policy

In order to maintain the photo quality inkjet printers at the MMAS we’ve instituted the following paper and print-cost policy.

1) Only Epson brand inkjet papers can be used in the studio unless explicit prior arrangements have been made with an instructor and with the studio staff.

2) Students who want to use the photo printers must establish that they have paid a course fee, or that they are matriculated in the Art and Art Education Program, prior to their first printing session. Some paper types are available at the studio. Other papers may be used but only Epson papers are pre-approved; all other papers must be pre-approved by the studio coordinator before arriving in the studio to print. Normal printing is encouraged at no cost; special projects or large quantity printing may incur costs. Please check with your instructor and the studio coordinator before beginning your projects.
