Student Printing Costs

Pay-per-page printing/copying

Each semester, students will be provided with a balance of $10 for general-use printing. Any unused credits do not roll-over to the next semester.

Printing will cost 5 to 36 cents per printed page, depending on color, sides printed, and paper size. 

Note that not all printers are able to print all sizes except standard size.  See the table below for details:

Paper Size (in) Sides B & W (Grayscale) Color
Standard (8.5 x 11) 1 Sided $0.05 $0.10
  2 Sided $0.08 $0.16
Legal (8.5 x 14) 1 Sided $0.06 $0.12
  2 Sided $0.11 $0.20
Tabloid (11 x 17) 1 Sided $0.10 $0.20
