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 then converted to a dollar amount which is placed into each student's USciences OneCard account to be used only for printing. The dollar amounts are shown here, and have no actual cash value.
|B&W single page||$0.09/page|
|B&W duplex page||$0.14/page|
|Color single page||$0.25/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:
