How does this happen?
Each print job is intercepted and held until the student reviews and releases the job.
What do you mean by review?
All print jobs sent by a student will be displayed on the release screen. At this time the student will be able to see the title of the print job, the number of pages, and the cost of producing the job.
How does this save resources?
Frequently, a student will send a print job without realizing the size of the job or inadvertently send a job multiple times. The review gives the student a chance to eliminate redundant or unexpectedly large print jobs from going on the printer.
Am I expected to pay for printing?
Students have already been paying technology fees. A portion of those fees have gone to support printing costs on campus. The only change is that we are allocating a specific number of pages to each student based on their currently paid technology fees.
What is my quota?
Each student is given a credit of 30 pages or $1.50 per credit hour.
Example - if a student is taking 10 credit hours of class - they will be allotted 300 pages or $15.00 towards print jobs.
What happens if I run out of pages?
An adjustment to your quota can be made by the system administrator if it is determined reasonable and necessary.
