As part of campus sustainability efforts, IT has implemented printing limits for students.

The semester limits for each student include: 

  • Job limit-- 40 printed/copied pages (if double sided, 20 physical sheets)
  • Semester limit-- 500 printed/copied pages (if double sided, 250 physical sheets)

You can view your balance on the print release stations or by visiting

Due to software limitations, this information is displayed in monetary value instead of pages. For example, you will have a balance of 500 pages at the beginning of the semester. This will display as $25.00, and $.05 will be deducted from your balance each time you print a page ($.10 for double-sided pages). 

If you run out of pages, you can add more to your account here: Additional pages can be purchased in increments of $5 (100 print pages), $10 (200 print pages), or $15 (300 print pages). 

If you have problems with a paper jam deducting from your account without printing your pages, you can send an email to the IT Helpdesk at and request a credit for the number of pages that were deducted from your account.
