Students receive a $30.00 print credit per semester. This is not an additional fee but is part of the technology fee. Printing is automatically deducted from this balance. Black and White printing is $0.05 a page and Color is $0.50 a page. In order to be "green" and conserve paper we charge the same price if the page is printed on one or both sided.

How do I check my printing balance?

When you login to the lab machines, you will see a box up in the upper right corner of the screen.


If you want more information on your print account...

Click on the Details... in the lower right corner. and the following page opens. Or to access it directly, enter and type in your username and password. PaperCut Client Summary.JPG

What happens if there is a problem with what was printed?

If it is something that is a printer problem such as a jam, then we will happily refund that print job. Issues that the user could have avoided will be handled on a case by case basis. Please stop by Computing Services to discuss any issues.

What happens once my printing allowance runs out and how do I get money added so I can print more?

Students can add money to their printing account at the cashier’s station of the One Stop Student Service Center. There is a $1 minimum.
