Printing - Student Printing - Pay for Print (Academic Year 2019-2020)

This article will summarize how students can utilize Pay for Print to print documents for the Academic year 2019-2020

Pay for  Print allow Students to print anything they may need for their academic tasks throughout the year. Each semester a student is given $1.20 in their pay for print balance. Once the balance reaches zero the student can continue to print using his or her campus cash account. To add funds the student can go to the UWL Get Funds page or visit the Meal Plan & Card Office in 1131 Student Union.

If you are using a computer in an ITS Classroom, Murphy Library or department lab you will now have two different printers to choose from:

All_Student_BlackandWhite_Printing -5 cents per page for single sided, 4.5 cents per page for double sided (duplex)
All_Student_Color_Printing - 60 cents per page for single sided, 59.5 cents for double sided (duplex)

Once you print to either printer the job will be held in a queue. You can then visit any release station to release the job to the printer. 
Once at the release station swipe your student ID or enter your NetID and password. You will see the jobs that you have sent to the printer and from that screen, you can print or cancel the job.

Note: You can release a job printed to All_Student_BlackandWhite_Printing to a color printer and still get charged the .05 per page but you can't release a job sent to the All_Student_Color_Printing to a black and white printer.

If you are printing from your personal device using the web print service you will also have four different printers to choose from:

All_Student_Web_BlackandWhite_Printing - 5 cents per page
All_Student_Web_Color_Printing - 60 cents per page
All_Student_Web_BlackandWhite_Printing_Duplex - 5 cents per page for single sided, 4.5 cents per page for double sided (duplex)
All_Student_Web_Color_Printing_Duplex - 60 cents per page for single sided, 59.5 cents for double sided (duplex)

Printing to the printers ending in Duplex will automatically print on both sides of the paper for a reduced cost.
