The campus library will be happy to help you send faxes for free, whether local or long-distance. Just ask for assistance at the library's Service Desk.


It's also possible to send or receive a fax on your own computer. There are web sites that can help you do that for free, as long as the fax number is in the U.S. or Canada. 

To send a printed document, first use a scanner to scan the document as a pdf and either...

   a.  send it directly to your own computer.
   b.  send it to your own email account and then
 download the document from your email account to your computer.

After you have the document saved to your computer, you can use a free online fax service to upload the document and send it. Though Chattanooga State cannot recommend any particular web service, these are some simple free online fax sites that our students sometime use:


         Limit of 3 pages per fax + their cover page
         Cover page has no ads; can only put comment if no file is uploaded
         Max of 2 faxes per day
         Allowed formats: doc or docx (Word), pdf, jpg
         Must verify your email address
         Limit of 13 pages per fax + their cover page
         Cover page has no ads; can add comment to cover page
         Max per day unknown

         Allowed formats: No doc or docx (Word) files, but pdf, jpg, gif, etc. are OK
         Won't need to verify email address, but type carefully, since you will be sent a copy of fax.


eFax Free is for people who receive less than 10 pages per month. You're given a fax number and incoming faxes are sent to your email. (Sending faxes requires a paid plan.)

FaxBetter Free is for people who receive at least one fax a week (up to 20 pages/month). You're given a toll-free fax number and get a notification to your email account when you receive a fax, then you log in to your FaxBetter account to read and download it. (Sending faxes requires a paid plan.)
