1. What may I print?
Essentially anything you can fit on US Letter paper (8.5x11). Nearly all PawPrints printers can print 2-sided. Many buildings also offer color printing. Visit our list of printers.
2. How do PawPrints allowances work?
At the start of each semester your PawPrints balance is reset to 400 pages (800 duplex prints). As you print during the semester your PawPrints balance decreases. Once you exhaust your allowance, every additional page printed will result in a charge to your university bill. PawPrints allowances do not roll over from semester to semester. All PawPrints allowances reset to 400 pages at the beginning of each term.
3. How does color printing work?
We have a number of color printers across campus, including two units in the central libraries. Print jobs sent to color printers will automatically charge 4 times the standard amount. For example, a 5 page document costs 20 pages.
4. How much will I be charged for pages printed over my allowance?
Students who print in excess of their semester allowance will be charged $.07 per additional page printed for standard printing, and $.28 per page for color printing. The charge will appear at the end of the semester on the students' university billing statement.
TIP: printing duplex gives you double the prints for the same price.
5. What does a negative print balance mean?
A negative balance appears when one's PawPrints allowance is exhausted. The negative number represents the number of pages the student will be billed for on his/her university account. Each page is billed at the rate of $.07 per page for standard printing, and $.28 per page for color printing.
6. May I get extra pages based on my major or classification?
Undergraduate students generally receive the same page allocation regardless of major or classification. One exception is business students, who receive 300 additional pages, because they pay an additional HSB Electronic Resources Fee. Graduate students receive an additional 200 pages around the twelfth class day of each semester.
