Printing at the Library

You are allocated a certain amount of free printing each semester. Any unused printing will carry over into the next semester, except for the beginning of a new school year, when it will reset. *Summer print allocation is currently $5.00. 

  • Undergraduate students: $18.75 each Fall & Spring (about 375 pages)
  • Graduate (non-doctoral) students$25.00 each Fall & Spring (about 500 pages)
  • Doctoral students:$50.00 each Fall & Spring (about 1000 pages)

Each page you print costs $.05, unless you print double-sided, which only costs $.04 per page.

We currently only have black and white printing.

If you run out of free printing funds, you can add money to your Express Dollars account to continue printing.
