Student printing charge change

August 18, 2016

As a result of a resolution from the Student Government, black and white student printing charges have been set at $.05 per page on all printers on campus.

Student fees cover 100 pages of black and white per semester, with some colleges offering additional subsidies to students for additional pages. After a student has reached his/her limit of printed pages, students are charged a minimum of $1.00 per month for additional printing. Setting a consistent printing price across campus helps students better budget their printing each semester.
