Please note that FASS does not support the use of Canva. Canva regularly produces subpar quality graphics that often do not print correctly. The use of Canva often results in FASS staff having to recreate the document from scratch in order to make any changes to it.

Student Assignment Drop-off

FASS does not accept assignments from students. The drop box for student assignments is located just outside the faculty mailboxes. The students should place their assignments in an envelope and clearly indicate the professor’s name on the front.

After Hours Drop-Off

FASS is open Monday – Friday, from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm during the regular school year, and from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm during the summer. If you need to drop off work to FASS outside of regular business hours, please place your items in an envelope and use the drop slot beside the front door of A107.

Document Storage

FASS has a comprehensive electronic filing system that allows them to quickly retrieve and reuse documents previously produced. The files reside on a secure network system that is backed up on a daily basis. By allowing FASS to maintain the filing system, faculty and staff can be assured that the latest document versions are stored in a logical and systematic manner for easy access. This method also saves faculty and staff’s personal network space.

If you require updates to a document that was previously produced in FASS, please do not make changes to the PDF, convert the PDF to a Word document, or recreate the file. By requesting the changes be made by FASS, you’re ensuring the highest quality of finished product, that Nipissing University brand standards are being adhered to, and that the copy on file will be up-to-date if staff changeover ever occurs.

Digital Signatures

Digital signatures can be created using a scanning station. Simply sign a piece of paper, and scan it to email. Send the scanned file to FASS and they can change it into an image file for you to use on electronic documents.

General Technical Software Support

Basic technical support can be provided to staff and faculty in their use of supported software products (see Supported Software FAQ). University Technology Services is available for more complex technical support requests.
