Printing policy for: The College of Engineering and Computer Science

Printer usage in the ENG-CS environment is measured on a cost per page basis so that we can have a better understanding of our printing costs and therefore plan accordingly.

The print quota for each student is set at 500 pages just prior to the first week of each school year.  This print quota applies to any printing that is done anywhere on campus not just within ENG-CS. Your print quota may be checked at any time by going to  https://suprinting.syr.edu/index.cfm.  Login using your NetId and password.  The bottom left of the screen displayed will show you your current Print Credit Remaining in a dollar value.  Although this dollar value will change slightly based upon the printer used, each print page is worth approximately $0.05 per page.  (Variation based on color vs Black & White; or paper size used). As you print, your quota will be reduced accordingly.

Once your print quota had reached the 90 % level, a message will be displayed informing you of your print quota status and explaining that you can purchase additional print pages by selecting the “Add Money to Quota” option. You can use a Credit Cart for this purchase. REMEMBER, Print Quotas are reset EVERY year!  Unused print quotas will not accrue and cannot be applied to the next year. We understand that there are special circumstances where additional print pages are required for TA’s and students working for an individual professor or department.  If this scenario applies, please ask the supervising professor or staff member to send an email to  help@ecs.syr.edu outlining an estimated number of additional print pages you may need and the changes will be applied within the current year ONLY. These changes do not carry to the next year. Color printing is available to any student taking courses in the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences.  The cost per page is $0.15 single side, $0.07 for the duplexed back side. This amount will automatically be deducted from your SU print Quota as you print.
