Important Notes from Library ITS Regarding Refunds

If a library printer creates poor quality printouts, bring the output to the Technology desk located on the 1st floor of Bird Library and request a credit on your printing account. The poor quality printouts must be surrendered to receive a refund. Refund requests typically take a few business days to process.    

No Refunds  

  • Except as noted above, no refunds are provided from the University's Print Management System.  

  • Printouts should be retrieved from the printer immediately. No refund will be given if a printout is left on the printer and reported missing.  

  • Incorrectly formatted print jobs (layout, orientation, single v. double sided, copies etc...) will not receive a refund.

  • Students who do not use all of their initial $20 credit will not receive a refund for any balance left on the account at the end of the school year.  

  • Students who add money to their printing quota will not receive a refund for any balances left on the account at the end of the school year.  

  • All student printing quotas are reset to $20 between the end of the second Summer Session and the beginning of the new academic year.  

  • For troubleshooting purposes, all refund requests must be submitted as soon as possible or before the Technology desk closes on the same day your printing issue takes place

   

SU Print Management System (PaperCut)

By visiting the SU Print Management system, you can perform various tasks, including:

  • Check your print balance and add funds via credit card.
    Note - funds can be added with cash ($5 increments only) in Steele Hall, room 206.
  • Release pending jobs (email to print, color and plotter jobs).
  • View printing history.
     

A Note on Margins 

Please note that libraries printers do not print to the edges of the paper (also known as full bleed).   Default margins vary by printer.
