Faculty Printing Services
EFSC's Printing and Graphics Services team can handle your syllabi, handouts and tests, including stapling, spiral binding or perfect binding.
Service is fast: submit your project by 7 AM via our online Job Request System (or send it campus mail or drop it by our Cocoa office) and your completed job will be sent to you through Campus Mail by 8:30 AM that same day! It's a level of service you can't beat and it's much more cost effective then using a department copy machine that's not designed for such a heavy print load.
Faculty Web Pages
Faculty Web Pages displayed on the Eastern Florida website are actually maintained through an outside system and feed onto the public website. To access the system and make updates, login to Faculty Webpage System.

FERPA and Online Courses [Downloadable Quick Guide]
Merging Online Courses & FERPA - Faculty teaching the same course in different online sections may merge their courses in Canvas to save time distributing the same course content to students across multiple course sections. Due to FERPA regulations, students may not have access to student information of course sections they are not enrolled in. Therefore, students may not interact in Canvas with students from another course section. Be sure to follow the guide on FERPA compliance in merged online courses that shows how to comply with FERPA regulations in a merged Canvas course site.
More on FERPA
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (also sometimes referred to as the Buckley Amendment), is a federal law regarding the privacy of student records and the obligations of the institution, primarily in the areas of release of the records and the access provided to these records. Failure to abide by FERPA could lead to the loss of federal funding.
As a faculty member, you must abide by FERPA guidelines. For example, if a student requests a letter of recommendation, there is a form they must fill out that authorizes you to include certain information in your letter, such as a course grade.
Visit the official Eastern Florida FERPA information area of the website in the Registrar's Office for more information and additional forms available for download.
Archived in the Resources area of our site, the Faculty Handbook is the guide to faculty policies and procedures at Eastern Florida State College. View Faculty Handbook & Archives.
