Printing, Scanning and Copying

Printing, scanning and copying services have resumed. Only lab advisors will be allowed to handle the equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please ask a lab advisor for assistance when you are ready to print or copy. 

All computers are connected to high-speed Xerox C8070 multi-function color printers. All tuition-paying students receive $35 per semester for printing, scanning, and copying needs which covers 350 sheets (up to 700 pages). This balance does not carry over from semester to semester. Once you’ve spent your $35, you can use any credit or debit card, or e-check, to pay for additional print credit using the new Pay-2-Print service in the student labs. Pay-2-Print can be found on the Print-release page found on any lab computer. Ask a lab advisor in any of our computer labs for assistance with Pay-2-Print.

Heading to a lab to print? Download the print driver.
