Print Policy Changes Take Effect Today
Posted: 08:35:27, Friday, Oct 16, 2015 Expiration: 08:35:27, Friday, Oct 23, 2015
The new Student Printing Policy takes effect today, October 16, 2015. Student printing accounts will be reset to $3.00 to reflect the new semester allotment set by the Student Technology Advisory Committee (STAC) last spring.
When the individual $3.00 allotment is used up, a student will need to have money in his/her respective
Passport Funds account in order to print from a lab computer. Any
allotment left at the end of the fall term will be carried through
winterim; print allotments will be reset to $3.00 when the spring
term begins. Likewise, any allotment left at the end of spring term will
be carried through summer until fall.
Changes that affect all Pioneers in the computer labsBeginning Friday, Oct. 16 everyone who logs into a lab computer will see a pop-up window at login which will display a monetary balance. The initial balance is calculated by adding available Passport Funds and, if you have student status, the student printing allotment.
- Employees should see an initial monetary balance of $0.00. The balance will decrease when a lab printer is used and may drop below $0.00. Employees MAY see a monetary balance greater than $0.00 if they have deposited money to their Passport Funds account. Regardless of what the pop-up displays, if you are an employee without student status, you will not be charged for printing in a campus lab.*
- Students will see the combined balance of print allotment + Passport Funds until the individual’s allotment is used; then the student will see the actual amount of money available on his/her card. This is also true for employees who are also students. The student balance should never drop below $0.00.
*Printing is a campus resource intended for university business. Any printing by an employee for personal use from a campus device should be incidental. The Information Center in the Markee Pioneer Student Center offers printing for a per-page cost as does Pioneer Printing and Postal Services in Brigham Hall.
