Faculty who would like to authorize students in their courses to use particular equipment can fill out this form.

Students who would like to be trained and authorized to use advanced equipment should email

Authorizations are given for specific pieces of equipment. Faculty members or studio managers must fill out the Class Authorization Form to validate the students who have been properly taught how to handle authorized equipment. Students will only be authorized for equipment that their faculty members (or studio manager) have cleared them for individual student authorizations can also be done using the same form.

Under NO circumstances may equipment be checked out under someone else’s name; this includes teaching assistants checking out equipment for faculty members. To solve this problem, teaching assistants should be cleared for all equipment that will be used in class ahead of time so that they can check it out under their own name.
