You must have the Instructor, Support Staff, or Course Copy Access role on both the original course and your destination to copy a course.
If access to a course is needed, you will have to contact the original instructor of the course to add you.
If the original instructor is not available, the Dean or Department Head of the academic department head must contact Academic Technology Support in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org for us to grant you access. They must indicate the full course number of the course including section and include the academic term the course was offered.
This requirement is due to the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations and the varying intellectual property policies across departments.
