ITS Public Lab Printing
Students are provided a $20 credit at the beginning of each academic year for printing services in the ITS public computer labs. The University's online Print Quota Management System automatically deducts the cost of the printing service from the $20 credit until the $20 credit is exhausted.
ITS Public Computer Lab Printing Services
Black-ink copies at 4 cents per sheet of paper (letter size; 8.5" x 11"). Each sheet has a front side and a back side which is equivalent to 2 pages (sides) per sheet.
Double-sided (duplex printing)
- Cost is 2 cents per page, whether printed or unprinted.
- Duplex printing is the default printer setting in all labs.
- Go Green! Double-sided documents essentially use half the paper and cost half as much as single-sided documents.
- Instructions for duplex printing:
- Choose PRINT in the File Menu
- Select PROPERTIES from the PRINT Menu
- Select TWO-SIDED (DUPLEX) PRINTING and click OK
Single-sided (simplex printing)
- Cost is 4 cents per printed page.

Adding Money to your Printing Account
- When the initial $20 credit has been exhausted, students can use a credit card to add money to their printing account through the University's online Print Quota Management System.
- Students can also use cash to add money to their account through the Schine Copy Center, Room 103 Schine Student Center, during normal business hours.
- Students will be notified via e-mail when their printing account balance drops below $5 and $1.
A print job that exceeds the balance remaining in a student's account will not print. For example, if there is $1 remaining in the account and a student submits a job for 30 single-sided pages (which would require a balance of $1.20) the job will not print.
- No refunds are provided from the University's Print Quota Management System.
- 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 year.
- Students who add money to their accounts for additional pages will not receive a refund for any balances left on the account at the end of the year.
- All student printing accounts are reset to the $20 credit limit between the end of the second Summer Session and the beginning of the new academic year.
Credits - Poor Quality Output
If an ITS-supported Public Computer Lab printer creates poor-quality printouts, students can bring the poor-quality printout to the Schine Copy Center and receive a credit on their printing account.
