Media Rates

Labor and equipment costs are always charged to the requestor if support is for any event with an admission fee--even if admission is on a donation basis. When no admission is being charged, staff time is charged back if the request is not supporting an academic program.

The Electronic Media Group of Media Services provides quality technical media production support for campus events.

  • Public address system set-up
  • Sound reinforcement for concerts and presentations
  • Video documentation

Production requests are negotiated per event with Electronic Media. Costs are based on time and complexity of each production. Consult our helpful production planning tips and hints page for assistance.

All productions must be negotiated in advance.

    Fee Structure

    Visit our Equipment and Labor Rates page for specifics on costs and types of events. Charges for your event will be based on its type and complexity. Academic events receive priority.

    Our two-rate system is based on whether your event is academic/campus or commercial/external.

    Academic events are class and class-related events.

    Campus events are non-academic events for students, faculty, and staff on campus which support the college mission whether charging admission, accepting a donation, or free.

    Commercial and External events include Conferences, Agencies, Alumni and all other users, including individuals, groups attending conferences on campus, or state agencies requesting service.
