What is the campus print policy? How many pages can I print?
When the new term begins, incoming students will receive all their print jobs up-front for their entire program, budgeted at 1000 pages per year. For example, a student in a 5-year program will receive 5,000 pages up-front to use over the course of their program. The pages are than converted to a dollar amount which is placed into each student's USciences OneCard account to be used only for printing. The dollar amount is based on $0.09 cents per page of black and white printing and has no actual cash value. The following options are also available when printing and will affect the total allocation:
Color $0.25 per page
Duplex $0.13 per page
The number of pages given to students is determined by their year and the length of their program and is broken down like this:
Incoming Students in 4 Year Programs
- Year 1 - 4000 prints
- Year 2 - 3500 prints
- Year 3 - 3000 prints
Incoming Students in 5 and 6 Year Programs
- Year 1 - 6000 prints
- Year 2 - 5,500 prints
- Year 3 - 4,500 prints
The print policy described above was introduced in the summer of 2012 and announced in the Prescription, Vol. II, issue 2, as seen here:
