Ferris Printing Services is happy to receive a hard copy to reference for tab copy, placement, and any other special information that is necessary to ensure accurate production once the Coursepack Request Form has been submitted.

Ferris Printing Services will do all copyright and royalty clearances. Please note that copyrighted material may take 4-6 weeks for clearance, depending on the publisher. We recommend submitting coursepack orders at least 8 weeks prior to the start of the semester.

If requested on the Coursepack Request Form, a hard copy proof of the coursepack will be provided for faculty approval. 

Once coursepacks are produced, they will be delivered to Ferris Outfitters at the University Center where your students can then purchase the coursepack. Students will still have the ability to charge their coursepack to their student account during the designated dates for each semester.

If you have questions regarding the production of your coursepack, please reach out to Ferris Printing Services by emailing [email protected] or calling 231-591-5914.

If you have questions regarding the sale of your coursepack, please reach out to Ferris Outfitters by emailing [email protected] or calling 231-591-2649.

• Coursepacks serve as a low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, especially when faculty original or Open Educational Resources are used. 
• Faculty are able to fully customize materials to their course curriculum. 
• No availability issues! Approved coursepacks are always available for students.
