Many services are free, but some have a charge to help defray costs.

 A. Key to Costs: Those items in the "Range of Services" with a “*” symbol have an hourly production charge for each student worker assigned to the job. See the ITS/ET website for current rates. The other items listed are free of charge. Faculty, students, and staff may also have audio materials recorded, edited and copied at a favorable rate.

B. Media Policy: The master copy of a tape or disc is provided free-of-charge if the finished product is available to the university community by being included in the ITS/ET audio collection. For other situations, media costs are charged back to the client.
