What is the campus print policy? How many pages can I print?
When the new term begins, incoming students receive all their print funds 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
If you need to add print funds, contact Terry Reilly in the Controller's Office (email@example.com or 215-596-8946). Be sure to include your name, USciences ID number, your program of study and the year you began.
The print policy described above was introduced in the summer of 2012 and announced in the Prescription, Vol. II, issue 2, as seen here:
The print policy has been developed in consultation with SGA and is implemented by the Technology Services Department.
