Classroom Usage Statement

There is no need to request permission if you wish to use a comic for educational or classroom usage. Classroom use refers to public and private schools (grade K-12), home schooling (grade K-12), college dissertations, college thesis papers and other restricted college usage only. Comics MAY NOT be used in presentations outside of the classroom, such as employee training, as handouts for non-student use, or in any manner that is not a classroom setting at the K to college level. All other uses will be charged a licensing fee. If your use falls under the classroom use as stated above, you may use up to seven (7) comics per year at no cost as part of our fair-use policy. If you wish to use more than seven, please contact us at universalreprints@amuniversal.com. There will be a fee of $25.00 (USD) per comic over seven comics.

PLEASE NOTE: Calvin and Hobbes comics cannot be used on web pages, online, email or intranet – no exceptions.
For Better or For Worse: Only five comics per year may be used within the context of educational fair use.

Images may be used in the classroom for the following uses:

  • Overheads
  • Syllabi
  • Reprinted on tests or assignment papers
  • Distributed for sharing during lectures
  • Posted on a classroom bulletin board
  • Other uses within the classroom only

They MAY NOT be used in presentations outside of the classroom, as handouts for non-student use, or in any manner that is not a classroom usage.

We ask that no changes, deletions or additions be made to the comic or text. You must reprint or post the comic in its entirety. Please include the cartoonist’s name and the Andrews McMeel Syndication name in the credit line.

As long as you do not abuse the permission or the creator’s work, we are glad to offer comics free of charge.

All materials remain the property of Andrews McMeel Syndication. All Rights Reserved.
