  • Electronic Media has a variety of labs which require a proficiency test before they can be used.
  • All of the labs are for academic use only.
  • Students might need to be enrolled in an academic program or individual learning contract with a media fee.
  • The Multimedia Lab is a staffed lab and has similar scheduling procedures but does not require a key or proficiency to use the lab.

Media Proficiencies Canvas Course

  • We use a Canvas course to help with proficiencies.
  • Each year we set up a new course named with the current academic year.
    • For example, Media Proficiencies 2023-2024
  • Certain programs are auto enrolled in the Media Proficiencies Canvas course.
  • If you have an academic need to use a space and are not in a media program fill out the Media Lab Proficiency Request Form linked below.
