Student printing is available across campus. The main areas for printing are in the library and in the open computer labs (Rooms 3215 & 3225).
Printing in the open labs is done completely online. Other departments may have different printing procedures. See appropriate staff.
Student Printing Allowance
Each enrolled student is automatically given a print allowance as part of their student portal account. At the beginning of each term, each enrolled student will receive free pages in his/her student account. If you use all of your free 8.5 x 11 black and white pages, you will be charged for any additional black and white print copies at a rate of 5 cents per page. You can add money to your print account at the Add Value Station located on the 3rd floor-Student Commons area. The number of free pages in the print allowance may vary from semester to semester.
Print balances do not carry over to the next semester. At the end of the term, any remaining print balance will be deleted. The print balance has no cash value, so there is no refund or transfer for unused print copies. Deletion of remaining print copies begins at 10:00pm the evening prior to a new term. At the beginning of the next term, free pages will be reinstated when you enroll in classes.
Print Allowance Eligibility
Only students currently enrolled in classes are eligible to receive a print allowance. Saint Paul College faculty and staff do not receive a free print allowance unless they are enrolled in a credit course.

Student Printing Policies and Guidelines
The Open Labs are located in rooms 3215 and 3225. Instructions are posted at each printer location. Labs that are not part of this program will have their own printing policies and are NOT part of the print allowance.
Your allowance is shared by both rooms 3215 and 3225. If you print in multiple labs, all printing is drawn from the same allowance total.
Printing Allowance Restrictions
The printing allowance is intended for your academic use only. You may not use your allowance to print other people's work or sell your unused allowance. You may not use your printing allowance for commercial purposes.
Conserve Your Printing Allowance
Your printing allowance is intended to be used throughout the semester. It is a good practice to conserve your printing so you will be able to print your work through the entire semester. This is particularly important when your coursework requires significant printing for final reports or projects.
No Refunds for User Error
Please preview your print job thoroughly before printing to avoid unwanted blank pages, extra pages, or other errors. You will be charged for these pages and there are no refunds.
Refunds Due to Printer Error
Page refunds are issued only for problems due to defective equipment, such as paper jams or missing ink/toner. Refunds consist of replacement pages only. Your printing allowance has no cash value. Please allow a 24 hour turnaround (business days only) for any page refunds.
