How can I reduce my costs or the amount that I print?

  • Download information; save it to your network drive or a USB drive.
  • Email information to yourself.
  • Email documents to professors or colleagues.
  • Print only the pages you need, instead of the entire document.
  • Preview what you are printing to ensure you only send the print job one time and are only printing what you need.

Do I get any free printing?

At the start of each semester, students will receive a $10 print credit subsidized by the student technology fee.  This is equivalent to 100 black-and-white printed pages.
