Nearby Locations to make the Copies

CSUF Pollack Library provides all the resources to the students for printing and copying their documents. That requires the students to use their Titan Card which can be obtained from the Pollack Library itself.

If you are new on campus, and do not have your Titan Card to use the Library resources, there are options available off-campus to print out and take the photo-copies of your documents.

International Student Hold

If you do not complete the required Check-In by the end of the week 2 of your first semester at CSUF, an all-services hold from International Programs will remain on your Student Record which will affect your eligibility to enroll in classes and receive services from CSUF departments.
