Lab Printing

New rules beginning summer 2014

The lab printing system is available in most student labs on campus. Printing is tracked in these labs using a token value system with students provided a fresh token quota each semester*, based on their student status. See labs using the printing system.

* Summer I and summer II are combined and count as one semester. 

Student quotas per semester

  • Undergraduates: 500 tokens
  • Graduate/Ph.D.: 750 tokens

Print values

  • Black and white, any size: 1 token
  • Color, any size: 10 tokens

Token cost

One token costs three (3) cents.

Billing

Student accounts are billed at the end of each semester, if they printed over their available token quota. The current cost of a token is three cents, e.g. if a student has a token balance of -600, their student account will be billed $18.00 at the end of the semester.

Checking quota and print history
