Copyright Permissions

The University Copy Centers provides administrative support by ordering copyright permissions for materials used in the classroom to help you and your department to comply with copyright law. Unless material expressly states that there is no fee for distribution or that the material is free to reuse, copyright permission must be obtained to reprint material distributed in a course.

The University Copy Centers partner with the Hunt Library and the Tepper School of Business to provide copyright permissions at a low cost to Carnegie Mellon University. 

Obtaining Copyright Permission

To ensure accurate processing of copyrights, please fill out the Copyright Request Form completely. Missing information will increase the time to complete requests. 

Please email the completed document to Patricia Herbster at and Elizabeth Paez at We will respond via email once the request is complete.


Below are the deadlines to submit copyright requests for each semester. We attempt to accommodate late requests, but they may not have copyright approval for the start of the mini-semester.
