1. How do PawPrints allowances work?
At the start of each semester your PawPrints balance is reset to $28.00 (800 duplex prints or 400 single-sided pages). As you print during the semester your PawPrints balance decreases $0.07 per piece of printed paper. Color printing is $0.28 per piece of printed paper. Once you exhaust your allowance, every additional page printed will result in a charge to your university bill at the end of the semester. PawPrints allowances do not roll over from semester to semester and cannot be cashed in.
2. 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 additional pages because they pay an additional HSB Electronic Resources Fee. Graduate students receive an additional $14.00 credit. Students who qualify for an additional credit will see that deposit around the twelfth class day of each semester.
3. May I buy additional pages?
Additional pages do not need to be purchased. If you continue printing beyond your semester allowance, your balance will become negative and will be added to your University Bill at the end of the semester.
Students may also opt in to the HSB Technology Commons Lab fee for 300 additional pages, as well as the additional services that lab offers.

4. What is the dollar amount in the PawPrints app?
This is the balance of your free quota. Everyone starts with a positive number, which declines as you use Pawprints. If you have a negative number, this will appear on your student bill.
5. How much does printing cost?
If you print one page, the app will deduct $.07 for B&W or $.28 for Color. If you choose to print 2-sided and print on the back of that page as well, the price is the same. When you print onto a new piece of paper, then you will be charged $.07 or $.28 again, and so on.
6. What does a negative dollar amount mean?
A negative balance appears when one's PawPrints allowance is exhausted. The negative number represents the amount the student will be billed 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.
7. 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.
8. Will I get money back for unused pages?
No. Your initial $28 allowance (and any remaining balance at the end of the semester) is not real money, but simply a dollar representation of the free quota students are provided.
9. Who actually pays for PawPrints?
PawPrints is crowd-sourced and crowd-funded. Printers, paper, toner, and support time are donated by host departments in buildings across campus. This is the main reason we have a printing limit, and don't typically change balances for special groups: cost changes affect LOTS of departmental budgets.
